Guidelines on UN Strategic Assessment

2010. Author: United Nations

These guidelines outline a process for UN staff to conduct an interdepartmental and inter-agency Strategic Assessment of a political crisis, conflict or post-conflict situation. The Strategic Assessment provides a mechanism for joint analysis and strategic discussions that cut across the political, security, development, humanitarian and human rights aspects of the UN’s work. It brings together the key UN departments and agencies in each of these areas and is intended to allow senior decision-makers, in particular the Secretary-General, to consider new or re-oriented forms of UN engagement based on the country’s needs.
