The @United Nations has released the first external audit report led by the Court of accounts as part of its new mandate as external auditor of the UN.

This report outlines ways in which these risks can be better managed to strengthen the resilience, effectiveness and efficiency of these operations, which are at the heart of the UN's mandate," said Pierre Moscovici on the occasion of the publication.

The report must now be debated and approved by the 5th Committee of the UN General Assembly.
