UN's Migiro Underscores Necessity Of Collaboration

Migiro warns of dangers to development of failing to ‘deliver as one’

19 February 2008 – Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro has wrapped up a two-day stop at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in Bangkok, where she underscored the necessity of bolstered collaboration between the world body and its partners in government and civil society.

Ms. Migiro told the UN Regional Coordination Mechanism meeting – which she chaired and which brought together dozens of regional UN offices and regional partners – that everyone, especially Member States, will bear the cost of the failure to “deliver as one.”

While in Bangkok, she also met with the South-East Asian nation’s new Foreign Minister Noppadon Patama.

One of Ms. Migiro’s key responsibilities since assuming her post last year is to strengthen the UN’s role as a centre for development assistance and policy.
