Botswana UN Country Fund Reports
Botswana UN Country Fund Key Documents:
The Government of Botswana (GoB) and the United Nations System in Botswana have developed the Government of Botswana-United Nations Programme Operational Plan 2010-2014 (GoB-UN POP) in a “Delivering as One” mode in an effort to coherently deliver on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and meet the national priorities as outlined in the National Development Plan 10 (NDP 10) and Vision 2016. The plan focuses on five UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) outcome areas established in line with the NDP 10 priorities over a five year period as follows:
The Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) for Botswana is intended to facilitate the realization of the GoB-UN POP outcomes by channeling consistent and predictable funds to priority areas through a joint funding window. It is also intended to facilitate and streamline the provision of donor resources in support of joint programming through the GoB-UN POP as well as to simplify narrative and financial reporting. It is a major vehicle for resource mobilization from donors to support existing funding gaps of the GoB-UN POP.
The objectives of the Botswana MPTF include:
Programme Steering Committee (PSC)
The Programme Steering Committee (PSC) will be responsible for the overall strategic oversight of the implementation of the programmes funded through the Botswana MPTF and for approving allocations to programmes and Participating UN Organizations within the context of the national priorities as set in the GoB-UN POP. The PSC will decide on the allocation of funds based on technical review and consultation recommendations from the Component Coordination Groups (CCGs) and will ensure alignment and synergies to programmes of other development partners and donors. The PSC will support the Administrative Agent (AA) in ensuring that the reporting requirements of the Botswana MPTF, as well as any periodic updates, are met in a timely manner, and will work closely with the AA to maintain an appropriate level of information on the AA’s Botswana website to ensure full transparency and accountability. The PSC will also support the UN Participating Organization on procedural aspects of the Botswana MPTF and prepare and report on consultations with stakeholders regarding the fund.
Component Coordination Groups (CCG)
The Component Coordination Groups of the five UNDAF Outcomes will technically review and provide PSC with recommendations on the allocation of resources.
UN Resident Coordinator (RC)
Further to the functions of PSC Co-chair, the RC will, in consultation with UNCT, be responsible for:
Administrative Agent (AA)
The Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) serves as the Administrative Agent (AA). In accordance with the UNDG Protocol on the AA, the responsibilities of the AA will include:
Contributions to Botswana MPTF: Contributions to the Botswana MPTF may be accepted from governments of Member States of the UN, intergovernmental or non-governmental organizations or from private sources. Acceptance of fund from the private sector will be guided by criteria stipulated in the UN system-wide guidelines on cooperation between the UN and Business community.
To ensure maximum flexibility and adaptation to national priorities, donors are encouraged to contribute with multi-year, un-earmarked sources.
Eligibility: Eligibility for funding will be subject to the signing of the Botswana MPTF standard Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the AA under the GoB-UN POP. Implementing partners will have access to the Botswana MPTF through Participating UN Organizations.
Allocation Decision Making: The GoB-UN POP outcome level results will form the basis for funding requests and allocations. The allocation decision making will be guided by an agreed criteria based on the following:
A weighted assessment will be developed to guide the strength of the proposal for each criterion.
Participating Organizations are required to submit final year-end expenditures by April 30 in the following year; Interim expenditure figures are submitted on a voluntary basis and therefore current year figures are not final until the year-end expenditures have been submitted.
