The second annual report in the Financing Series, “Financing the United Nation Development System – Current Trends and New Directions” was launched in New York today. Produced jointly by the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and the UN MPTF Office, the Report looks at current financing trends and challenges, and identifies interesting new directions in the financial landscape of the UN Development System. It provides an overview of sources and instruments of financing, analyses the implications of financing trends, and through extensive data and essays collection, including from a number of senior UN officials, highlights new thinking around financing the UNDS.

Mr. Do Hung Viet, the Deputy Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Viet Nam moderated the event and panel, which consisted of Dr. Bruce Jenks, Senior Advisor of the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation, Jennifer Topping, the Executive Coordinator of the MPTF Office, and John Hendra, UNDG’s Senior Coordinator of the UN Fit For Purpose Initiative. After a round of remarks by the panel the session opened up for Q&A to the broad audience representing a wide range of stakeholders.  

One of the report’s key purposes is to stimulate critical debate and action around key issues facing the financing of the UNDS . The active participation during the launch, with volunteers coming forward to  collaborate on the next installment of Financing the United Nations Development System report, was a good indication of the success of the 2016 report in meeting this objective.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon established the United Nations Zika Response Multi-Partner Trust Fund (UN Zika MPTF) to finance critical unfunded priorities in the response to the Zika outbreak. The UN Zika MPTF provides a rapid, flexible and accountable platform to support a coordinated response from the UN system and partners.

The Zika virus is spreading rapidly. Since January 2015, 61 countries and territories have reported local transmission of Zika virus, and urgent funds are required to support the implementation of national response plans and address the broader social and economic challenges that lie ahead.

The UN Zika Response MPTF will directly support the Zika Strategic Response Framework, developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in consultation with UN agencies, partners, and international epidemiological experts.

The Trust Fund seeks contributions from Member States, regional organizations, inter-governmental organizations, businesses and individuals. To contribute, please go to http://mptf.undp.org/zika.

UN Press Release


22 Apr 2016

Geneva - April 22, 2016 - The Central African Forest Initiative (CAFI) MPTF and the Minister of Finance of the DR Congo signed a letter of intent (LOI) for US$200 million to address deforestation and forest degradation in the country and to promote sustainable development. The signature of the LOI coincides with the world leaders’ signing ceremony in New York for the historic climate agreement reached in Paris in December.  April 22 is also International Mother Earth Day, with the 2016 global theme “Trees for the Earth.”

 

The LOI addresses agricultural expansion, the use of fuelwood, illegal logging, land-use planning, unsecure tenure, demographic pressure and oil and mining activities, and integrates the governance issues that often underpin these drivers.  It exemplifies the partnerships needed to reach the ambitious climate change mitigation goals set out by the Paris Agreement, and is a further step in recognition of the 2014 NY Declaration on Forests. It is the first signed between the CAFI MPTF and a country of the Central Africa region, and the largest one ever concluded on REDD+ in Africa. Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is an effort to create a financial value for the carbon stored in forests, offering incentives for developing countries to reduce emissions from forested lands and invest in low-carbon paths to sustainable development.
