Summary of Changes/Comments
December 21, 2022 - Minor editorial and straightforward changes have been made, including deleting a duplicate paragraph. The policy is now available in French and Spanish. To access the French and Spanish versions click on the respective language tab.

September 27, 2022 - The United Nations Security Management System (UNSMS) requires that each UN entity maintains an internal Framework of Accountability (FoA) documenting individual roles, responsibilities, and accountabilities related to the security of their respective organizations. The recent revision of the UNDP Security FoA policy was undertaken to align with UNSMS policy updates. Consistent with this, the revised policy introduced the role of the senior most UNDP representative at the security area level and incorporates the role of programme and project managers in supporting Resident Representatives to ensure security considerations are mainstreamed in planning processes. The revised policy supports and enables UNDP achieve its goals as established in the UNDP Strategic Plan and is in line with the UNSMS goal of enabling UNDP activities within acceptable levels of security risk.

Other editorial and straightforward changes have also been made to streamline content.
