About

Overview

Drawing upon Moldovan and global expertise in facilitating local self-governance and community-led development, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) have established, using a pass-through funding modality, an Integrated Local Development (ILD) Joint Programme in the Republic of Moldova. The ILD Joint Programme aims to strengthen legal and regulatory frameworks and streamline local administrative procedures and systems. There is an emphasis on developing and implementing a framework for the effective delegation of authority to the local public authorities (LPAs), fiscal decentralisation to deliver essential services, and the promotion of a greater role for women in decision-making bodies. Under the ILD Joint Programme, local organisations play a more influential role in local and regional leadership.

The ILD Joint Programme encompasses:

  • 15 districts (rayons), out of 32, in the Central, Northern and Southern regions, including one district in the breakaway region of Transnistria, and the Security Zone;
  • A duration of four years, from 01 December 2009 to 31 December 2012; and
  • Partnerships with the State Chancellery (responsible for decentralization and local self-governance), the Academy of Public Administration, and the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Labour, Social Protection and Family, the Ministry of Construction and Regional Development, local public authorities, as well as local civil society organisations, academic institutions, and think tanks.

The ILD Joint Programme is administered by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in accordance with its financial regulations and rules.  

 

Assistance Strategy

The Integrated Local Development (ILD) Joint Programme’s main strategy is to assist the Republic of Moldova to implement rights-based, gender sensitive regional and local policies to support sustainable processes of development. The ILD Joint Programme also aims to ensure that vulnerable groups in poor rural and urban areas take advantage of sustainable socio-economic development opportunities.

The ILD Joint Programme’s objectives are: 

  • Objective 1: To assist the Government of the Republic of Moldova to upgrade national legal, policy and advisory frameworks to support sustainable processes of development at the local level;
  • Objective 2: To develop capacity of local public authorities for rights-based and gender responsive planning, budgeting, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development initiatives;
  • Objective 3: To empower rural communities and civil society organisations in target regions to actively participate in local development planning, implementation and monitoring; and
  • Objective 4: To improve service delivery and community infrastructure in all communities, especially in the Transnistria and the Security Zone regions.

The commitment of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) to the ILD Joint Programme is reflected in the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), which legally protects and promotes human rights, gender equality and social inclusion. The ILD Joint Programme contributes towards the achievement of Millennium Development Goals (MDG), especially MDG 8 - Develop a global partnership for development.

 

Governance

The Integrated Local Development (ILD) Joint Programme in the Republic of Moldova is implemented jointly by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) using a pass-through funding modality. The programmatic and financial accountability rests with the Participating UN Organisations, which manage their respective components of the Joint Programme.

Inter-Agency Coordination Committee

The main objective of the Inter-Agency Coordination Committee is to facilitate effective implementation and coordination of the ILD Joint Programme. It includes: the State Minister, the Ministry of Construction and Regional Development, the State Chancellery, 2 local public authorities, 2 non-governmental organisations, the two Participating UN Organisations, and the donor(s) as observer(s). 

Administrative Agent

The Multi-Patner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) serves as the Administrative Agent (AA) of the ILD Joint Programme. The AA is responsible for concluding Standard Administrative Arrangements (SAAs) with donors and Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) with Participating UN Organisations (UNDP and UN Women).

 

Decision Making

The Inter-Agency Coordination Committee discusses and approves work plans and budgets as well as any substantive or financial issues pertaining to implementation of the Integrated Local Development Programme (ILD) Joint Programme in the Republic of Moldova. The members assume responsibility for performing joint monitoring of ILD Joint Programme activities. Decisions are made by consensus. Members provide regular feedback on its implementation and propose any necessary corrective actions to resolve problems, ensure accountability, and make recommendations.

The Administrative Agent [Multi-Donor Trust Fund Office (MDTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)] for the ILD Joint Programme is responsible for the receipt, administration, and management of contributions from donors; disbursement of funds to the Participating UN Organisations; and consolidation of financial reports produced by each of the Participating UN Organisations and Participating Non-UN Organisations, and provision of these reports to the Inter-Agency Coordination Committee for onward submission to the donor(s).
