During the negotiations of the 2016 Quadrennial Comprehensive Policy Review (QCPR), UN Member States may want to consider lessons from the past. The QCPR is the key platform for debating the future of the UN Development System. However, after more than 30 years and 11 resolutions, the next round is at risk of looking like “business as usual,” without further reflection on what about the QCPR needs to be modernized.  Member States will have to consider: What core function should the QCPR+ serve in the future? To whom is the annual QCPR resolution addressed?  And how can implementation be ensured? This article makes the case for a transformation of the QCPR to a corporate strategy for the UN Development System.
