EXCLUSIVE –  United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres is on a blitz campaign to streamline the U.N.’s under performing bureaucracy, give more authority to its outlying branches, and greatly expand his ability to shuffle money around in the U.N.’s regular biennial budget (just part of its total cost)—all in the next 18 months.

On paper, at least, it amounts to perhaps the most ambitious effort at U.N. reform in 20 years, before the world organization floundered into the vast Oil-for-Food scandal, and a subsequent  array of administrative fiascos and largely failed reform attempts  under Guterres’ predecessor, Ban Ki-moon.

Guterres’ chief motivation, though he won’t say so explicitly, is the Trump Administration.

Instead, Guterres is arguing to U.N. member states what he told a town hall meeting of U.N. staffers in late July:  that his version of reform  is “an absolutely essential instrument for the protection of the U.N.”  amid increasing international skepticism about the organization’s efficiency, effectiveness, and even its reason for existence—all of which also happens to be true.
