Scope and content

"The records in S-1957 document the coordination of work between the Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG) and the regional economic commissions; funds; programmes; specialized agencies; research and training institutes; councils; committees; and other entities of the United Nations System. The series contains records from a variety of internal and external agencies and organizations including: United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA); United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP); United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO); World Health Organization (WHO); Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS); United Nations Centre for Human Settlements (UNHABITAT); United Nations Development Programme (UNDP); United Nations International School (UNIS); Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO); World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO); World Food Programme (WFP); Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC); Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP); United Nations Economic and Social Commission for West Asia (ESCWA); United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC); United Nations University (UNU); and the University for Peace (UPEACE); United Nations System Chief Executive Board for Coordination (CEB); International Criminal Court of Justice (ICJ); International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR); International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY); United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF); United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM); United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA); United Nations Correspondents Association (UNCA); United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR); Joint Inspection Unit (JIU); United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD); United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA); United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE); World Trade Organization (WTO); International Criminal Court (ICC); International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA); and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). The records date from 2007 through 2010, and are arranged chronologically and therein by subject. The records of S-1957 contain correspondence; memoranda; official notes; invitations and responses; requests for meetings; summaries and updates concerning meetings, conferences, and the progress of work. In addition, there are records pertaining to United Nations commemorations, medals and recognition programmes, such as the International Day of Peace and the Nobel Peace. Within this series, the Resident Coordinator System (RCS) records are distinctive from the others because it is managed by UNDP, and its function is carried by the UNDP Resident Representative on behalf of the entire United Nations System. As the designated representative of the Secretary-General, the Resident Coordinator is the leader of the UN Country Team (UNCT) and plays a central role in coordinating the development operations of the United Nations and ensuring alignment with national priorities. At the end of the calendar year, each UNCT reports on the results it has achieved based on its annual work plan, using the Resident Coordinator's Annual Report format. S-1957 contains these reports, which usually include a letter to the Secretary-General summarizing the team's work and highlighting significant achievements, a results table and an annual work plan for the following year. In addition, there are also letters to Heads of State concerning the designation of Resident Coordinators/UNDP Resident Representatives from the Secretary-General; and correspondence pertaining to the selection of United Nations Coordinator/UNDP Resident Representative positions. In 2011, the EOSG adopted a new records classification scheme that contains records for the remainder of the Secretary-General's term. Records similar to those in S-1957 are also found within S-1959: Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG) - Central Files (2011-2016).
