                                                 advantage in these areas but collaboration and
                                                 coordination with the BWIs is sound, e.g. the PRSP.

                                                 evaluation processes, where they are functioning.
                                                 The UNCT relies for example on data and statistics
                                                 provided by the Bureau of Statistics to monitor key
                                                 indicators for MDG progress. Similarly, we relied on
