Truth is.....There is no money ! So uncle Helen Clark is forced by donors to change and cut through out - she hires Stephen Browne to present it "nicely" to staff !

UNDP: Reviving a Practical Human
Development Organization
Craig N. Murphy and Stephen Browne

Constant reform has characterized the UN Development Programme (UNDP) throughout its existence, say the authors of two recent books on the UNDP. Change bespeaks an organization ready to adapt but also fundamentally uncertain about its proper role. It teeters between two sets of tensions. The first tension is between being both coordinator and competitor in the UN development system; the second tension is between exerting priorities from the center while being flexible in program countries. These tensions should be resolved, and enable UNDP to be the UN’s human development organization.
