Back in December 2008, UNIPSIL, along with UN Agencies, Funds and Programs working as the UN Country Team (UNCT) in Sierra Leone, adopted a Joint Vision under which they agreed to combine their efforts to further the consolidation of peace. UNIPSIL and the UNCT established common facilities and services such as joint regional offices, a multi-donor fund, a joint strategic unit, a medical facility, security services and a vehicle repair shop in order to enable the UN to deliver as one by maximizing synergies and avoiding duplication and overlapping of interventions.

UNIPSIL’s approach to bring together the political, humanitarian and development mandate of the various UN Agencies, Funds and Programs whilst at the same time sharing of joint facilities and services with the members of the UNCT, made UNIPSIL unique among the United Nations’ peacebuilding offices around the world.

UNIPSIL together with UN Agencies, Funds and Programs in Sierra Leone recognized their joint responsibility for a fully integrated peacebuilding mission as called for by the UN Security Council. Therefore they agreed to combine their efforts and resources behind this Joint Vision in support of the Government of Sierra Leone and the people of this country. In this Joint Vision for Sierra Leone, the UN organisations in Sierra Leone, which have organised themselves in the UN Country Team (UNCT) as the main common co-ordination body in country, defined the common priorities that guided the common activities. In this Joint Vision the UNCT set out a number of joint planning, implementation and coordination mechanisms with the aim of enhancing the impact of the United Nations’ assistance as part of the international communities’ efforts of consolidating peace and promoting sustainable development in Sierra Leone.

 
The Joint Vision defined the UNCT’s contribution to implementing the Government’s Agenda for Change, to accomplishing the mandate given to the UN organisations in Sierra Leone by the Security Council and to supporting the goals and work of the UN Peacebuilding Commission. The Joint Vision covered the initial period from 2009 to 2012.
