(a) Draft country programme documents

At this session, the Executive Board will consider a total of 26 CPDs. There are 19 draft CPDs for full programme cycles. These are presented to the Board for discussion and comment, and for approval of the aggregate totals of estimated regular and other resources in the programme budget. The electronic versions of the draft CPDs, to be made available on the UNICEF Internet site, will contain a link to the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) results matrices, where applicable. Taking into account the comments made at this session, the draft documents will be revised and posted on the UNICEF Internet site within six weeks after the session. They will be submitted to the Board for approval on a no objection basis at the second regular session of 2007 unless at least five members have informed the secretariat in writing, within six weeks of the posting of a document, of their wish to bring a particular country programme before the Executive Board.
