FILTER BY COUNTRY & ORGANISATION -or- ISSUE AREA:
United Nations

Of all the international organisations the United Nations (UN) made the most commitments. 87 per cent of them are in play, although none are complete.

Both of the UN’s commitments on tax are inactive, as is a commitment to work with the World Health Organisation to support global, regional and country initiatives that strengthen the transparency procurement of health commodities.

Through the Stolen Asset Recovery (StAR) Initiative, the UN has also pledged to support the launch and the implementation of the Global Forum on Asset Recovery.  The Forum, which will be hosted in Washington D.C. in December 2017, will be convened and actively followed up on by StAR.

The UN also committed to co-host, in collaboration with the UK and relevant partners, a follow-up high-level meeting to the UK Summit, in the margins of the 72 Session of the General Assembly in September 2017.
