Comoros One UN Fund - Reports
The UN has been present in the Union of Comoros, which is a Small Island Developing State, for thirty years. Due to its low integration into the global economy, the Comoros are beginning to be seriously affected by the economic and financial crisis.
Following two years of efforts aimed at ensuring UN coherence in the country, the Comoros has been recognized as a Delivering as One (DaO) volunteer country in October 2009. Through this approach, the UN in the Comoros will bring together the strengths of all UN agencies to enhance its service delivery and help the country to accelerate its progress toward achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
In accordance with the Comoros’ commitments on aid effectiveness, the DaO initiative is being implemented in a collaborative manner under the leadership of the Government of the Union of the Comoros. In addition, through the United Nations Peacebuilding Fund, the United Nations provides significant support to the peace and national cohesion process.
The DaO initiative in the Comoros comprises of the Five Ones: One Programme, One Leader, One Budgetary Framework, One Office, and One Voice. The interdependence between the Five Ones in the Comoros is subscribed to by the UN Country Team, composed of 20 resident and non-resident Agencies that are referred to as the Participating UN Organizations.
The Comoros One Fund is administered by the Multi-Donor Trust Fund Office (MDTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in accordance with its financial regulations and rules.
Information on the Comoros Delivering as One is available by clicking here.
The priorities of the UN in the Comoros are aligned with the government’s Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) as described in the One UN Programme (2010-2012).
Under the strategic leadership of the Resident Coordinator (RC), the Comoros One Fund is intended to facilitate the realization of One Programme outcomes by strengthening the planning and coordination process, uniting the funding allocation and channeling funds towards the highest priority needs.
The Comoros One Fund also aims to ensure that funds are available for the Participating UN Organizations to respond to emerging and unforeseen circumstances thereby enhancing the flexibility and responsiveness of the UN system.
In view of coordinated resource mobilization, the Comoros One Fund is the proposed vehicle for further consolidation of country level funding mechanisms. All additional resources mobilized through joint UN resource mobilization efforts are managed through the One Fund.
The overall management of the Comoros One Fund is with the UN Country Programme Steering Committee and the UNCT, under the leadership of the Resident Coordinator (RC).

The Steering Committee is composed of representatives from the Government of the Comoros and the Heads of Participating UN Organizations.

Funding requests to the Steering Committee should respond to the following criteria:
In addition, allocations should be in accordance with the guiding principle of preparedness to implement and possibility to deliver results in full by requesting organizations.
The programmes that have completed detailed planning for implementation qualify for an initial allocation of funds from the Comoros One Fund. The UN Country Team will constitute a Monitoring & Evaluation Group (M&E Group) to assess the outputs / activities and apply additional allocation criteria related e.g. to absorptive capacity, the time sensitive nature of the activities and alignment with national priorities.
The M&E Group conducts a desk review of the programmes and makes a proposal for allocation of funds. Its fund allocation proposal will then be shared with the UN Country Team, for a two-week review. It will subsequently be presented to the One Programme Steering Committee where the final decision on resource allocations is made.
Subsequent allocations are done twice a year (May and October) based on performance and following the same allocation process described above.
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.
