United Nations is an organization that has many years of operation. The primary objective why the intergovernmental organization UN was formed was to promote international cooperation but also ensure that they create and maintain international order. There are many countries in the world meaning that one organization cannot serve all of them comparing the diverse fields that need to be taken care of and that is why there are agencies under UN that help out. Since the formation, UN has been making a lot of steps forward and helping people across the world and you can read more about such successes. It is also important to note that for the past few years, now, UN agencies have had very many issues surrounding them. The issues of her a lot of negative consequences on the performance of the UN instances and therefore the many failures you are hearing about. The truth is behind every success of failure, there’s always a reason behind it. Given in this article are some of the reasons why the UN agencies are failing.
Change in leadership over a short period of time is one of the setbacks that many UN agencies have been facing. Every leader wants to leave the legacy after they come into power in this has been a great issue because policies keep on changing from one leader to another. Failure is a guarantee when policies are implemented halfway and that is why you find that the UN instances of failing out a very high rate. Another contributing factor to the failures UN agencies are experiencing is not the change of policy but poor implementation of the policy. There are policies that always constant when it comes to UN organizations, but there is always an imbalance when it comes to implementing them and therefore resorting to the failure of the specific policy. Another leadership issue that has been there is the difference in ideas and therefore sometimes some problems are ignored because people have diverse ways of handling them. When people don’t agree on specific missions, then it becomes hard to implement anything in the long run.
Another undeniable issue that has been a real setback, is the increase in crime levels across the world. Specific areas that UN agencies have failed include the things like child abuse and rape, terrorism, massacre, and this has led to the increase in refugee crisis across the world. These are the major issues that have gained a lot of attention and therefore of required a lot of resources and has led to the straining of the UN budget.
