12th United Nations Inter-Agency Round Table on Communication for Development

The 12th UN Inter-Agency Round Table on Communication for Development will be hosted by UNICEF and is scheduled to take place in 2011 in India under the theme "The Role and Relevance of Adolescent Girls in Transforming Society and Achieving MDGs".

The United Nations Inter-Agency Round Tables on Communication for Development enable the Agencies to discuss, exchange and provide information on the implementation of communication for development activities within each agency.

In its resolution 50/130, the General Assembly recognized the important role of communication for development programmes in the United Nations system to enhance transparency of system-wide coordination within the United Nations system and also recognized the need further to facilitate Inter-Agency cooperation and to maximize the impact of the development programmes. The United Nations Inter-Agency Round Table on Communication for Development has provided the mechanism for exchange of experiences and, more recently, for discussing strategic planning and action on communication issues including within United Nations country teams. The ongoing focus on capacity- building, monitoring and evaluation will have long term and sustainable consequences that will demonstrate the core value of communication in any development intervention.
