What are the challenges in measuring both agency-specific and system-wide results and impact in capacity development delivered through operational activities of the UN system? 3.

If not, what are the main obstacles facing the UN development system in this regard? Do the delivery models of other development cooperation actors at the country level such as the regional and multilateral development banks and the bilateral donors provide valuable lessons from which the UN development system can learn in this regard?
