  28. 28. Country Needs Assessments Discussion Paper Implications for broader response
  29. 29. Key messages • Article 5 matters most fundamentally; implementation needs to be accelerated • Framing tobacco as development issue, mainstreaming, evidence and political positioning • UN has proactive and reactive (demand-driven) ways of providing support • UNDP is eager to help, but this is new terrain – we have institutional capacity development needs
  30. 30. Four Possible Models for National Coordination • FCTC-specific coordination mechanism • Expand existing multisectoral body • Create an NCD-specific body that has a focus on FCTC implementation • Refrain from advocating for one model and let every country find its own way.
  31. 31. Discussion Questions • Country Level Role for IATF members? • Role for UNCT? WHO Reps? UN Res Coordinators? • Challenges for integration of FCTC into development in the post-2015 agenda? • Do we build NCD responses on FCTC model? Incorporate NCDs into it? • Article 5 type guidance for NCDs? • Normative guidance for NCD/FCTC integration into UNDAFs?
