To help the Government of Kiribati meet the significant challenges of providing basic infrastructure and services to its dispersed and vulnerable population, the UNDAF Kiribati Implementation Plan (UNDAF-KIP) 2008-2012 builds on the UN’s long-term relationship with Kiribati and UN reform efforts for strengthening harmonisation between UN organisations. The Kiribati One UN Fund Terms of Reference was revised in November 2012, to enable exisiting projects under the UNDAF-KIP 2008-2012 to complete their activities.
As a jointly designed programme of clear and mutually agreed set of priorities the UNDAF-KIP focuses on areas where the UN has a comparative advantage in providing policy advice and technical assistance aligned to Government priorities and processes to reduce transaction costs. The UN agencies currently operating in Kiribati are UNDP, UNICEF, UNFPA, WHO, UNESCO, UNIFEM and ILO. These agencies have been enhancing their capability to partner as one entity with the Government and development partners to implement the UNDAF-KIP and provide opportunities for joint programming. As an operational implementation framework, the Plan is delivered directly with relevant Government Ministries through national systems and allows for adjustments to challenges as they emerge over its five-year cycle through an annual work planning process. It’s Monitoring and Evaluation framework is aligned, as much as possible, to the Kiribati Development Programme (KDP) and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to measure how the UN contribution will help the Government achieve its development priorities. Enhanced partnerships are important to achieve the objectives of the UNDAF-KIP. As it is consistent with current donor programs and was developed in consultation with key development partners, the Plan presents opportunities to better harmonise the way aid is delivered and managed in Kiribati. The UN contributes to ensuring adequate resources to fund the UNDAF-KIP by increasing programme resources available to the Government, but there remain clear resource gaps and requirements for additional funding to ensure that programmes deliver concrete outcomes.
The Kiribati One UN Fund aims to meet these funding gaps and presents opportunities to advance alignment, harmonisation and reduced transaction costs under the Government’s coordination and leadership. The Kiribati One UN Fund mechanism is expected to achieve: (i) adequate and predictable funding for the delivery of the UNDAF-KIP; (ii) resources to enable flexible response to emerging and unplanned needs in line with the KDP; (iii) reduced transaction costs for the Government and all partners; and (iv) improved overview and management of UN development resources. In the subsequent five-year Plan 2013-2017, increased opportunities are expected for joint initiatives with more fully integrated programming for the operations of the UN in Kiribati.
The Kiribati One UN Fund is administered by the UNDP Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) in accordance with its financial regulations and rules, and the UNDG AA Protocol.
The goal of the Kiribati One UN Fund is efficient and effective resource mobilisation, allocation and disbursement of funds to support the UNDAF Kiribati Implementation Plan (UNDAF-KIP). The Kiribati One UN Fund takes a phased approach and specifically aims to:
Expected outcomes of the Kiribati One UN Fund are:
Joint Strategy Meetings
The JSM decides on the allocation of Kiribati One UN Fund resources to the UNDAF-KIP funding gaps identified in the AWP, based on recommendations and inputs from regular technical consultations between the UN and line ministries, national partners and donors, and also decides on the allocation of resources for emerging or unplanned needs of the Government of Kiribati in line with the KDP.
