HOW DO WE COLLABORATE?
The Regional Collaborative Platform for Europe and Central Asia (RCP) brings together the regional heads of the UN entities working to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It helps address key challenges that transcend country borders and that are of common concern.
The RCP serves as a tool to achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda. It is a key platform to facilitate cross-sectoral cooperation and joint action, and a bridge between the global and the country level.
WHO ARE THE MEMBERS?
The RCP and its Issue-based Coalitions and groups are open to all regional and sub-regional offices of UN Funds, Programmes and Specialized Agencies, as well as related UN entities.
It is chaired by the Deputy Secretary-General and co-chaired by two Vice-Chairs, the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Regional Director of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). The RCP secretariat is jointly provided by the Development Coordination Office, UNDP and UNECE.
