Sierra Leone MDTF - Reports
Sierra Leone MDTF - Key Documents
The United Nations organizations, agencies and programmes working in Sierra Leone, in recognition of their joint responsibility for a fully integrated peacebuilding mission as called for by the UN Security Council, have agreed to combine their efforts and resources behind a Joint Vision in support of the Government of Sierra Leone and its people. Through the Joint Vision for Sierra Leone, the UN defines the common priorities that will guide its activities and outline a set of underlying criteria and comparative advantages which will shape its programmes and projects through a conflict-sensitive approach. The Joint Vision sets out a number of joint planning, implementation and coordination mechanisms with the aim of enhancing the impact of the United Nations’ assistance as part of the international communities’ efforts of consolidating peace and promoting sustainable development in Sierra Leone.
The Joint Vision defines the UN’s contribution to implementing the Government of Sierra Leone’s Agenda for Change (Second Poverty Reduction Strategy, PRSP II, 2008-2012), to accomplishing the mandate given to the UN by the Security Council and to supporting the goals and work of the UN Peacebuilding Commission. With the Joint Vision, the UN intends to put into practice the main principles of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness under the leadership of the Government. In parallel to the Agenda for Change, the Joint Vision will cover the initial period from 2009 to 2012. The total resources required for implementing the Joint Vision over the four years is estimated to be US$ 349 million, of which US$ 204 million (59%) would be required as new funding.
The Joint Vision document establishes the general framework for the UN’s cooperation with the Government of Sierra Leone. The benchmarks of the five priority areas, programme outlines and joint programme implementation and operational support mechanisms are described in the annexes to the document.
The overall aim of the Sierra Leone Multi-Donor Trust Fund (Sierra Leone MDTF) is to move towards an enhanced state of coherence and efficiency for the UN’s programmes and projects at the country level, whilst creating a joint funding window that corresponds to and supports the programmatic integration that the UN is seeking to accomplish under the Joint Vision. The SL-MDTF is consistent with the Paris Declaration on Aid Efficiency, including national ownership, alignment with national priorities, harmonization and coordination. Governed by the Sierra Leone MDTF Terms of References, it also responds to the Delivering as One Initiative and the Secretary General’s efforts to improve the integration of UN political, development and humanitarian activities in the UN system through an increasing network of integrated UN field offices.
The Sierra Leone MDTF 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.
Through the Joint Vision, the UN family in Sierra Leone has agreed to combine its efforts behind one overall priority of furthering the consolidation of peace in the country and four programmatic priorities: the economic integration of rural areas, the economic and social integration of the youth, an equitable access to health services and an accessible and credible public service. The overall priority and four programmatic priorities were chosen in order to maximize the UN family’s contribution to the Government of Sierra Leone’s Agenda for Change (Second Poverty Reduction Strategy, PRSP II, 2008-2012) within the UN’s respective organizational mandates, specialization and expertise. Recognizing that the UN is a part of a wider international group of development partners, it selected these priorities in view of building its joint programmes on the comparative advantages that the UN family possesses in Sierra Leone.
The objectives of the Sierra Leone MDTF include:
The Development Partners Committee (DEPAC)
United Nations Country Team
Executive Representative of the Secretary General/Resident Coordinator
The Administrative Agent
The Sierra Leone MDTF has an internal management and external decision-making arrangements.
Internal oversight: Based on the information provided by the Administrative Agent (UNDP’s MDTF Office) and the UN-SPU, the UN Country Team will regularly review the status of the Sierra Leone MDTF and its contribution towards the implementation of the Joint Vision. In particular, the UNCT will ensure that a balanced approach is taken in raising and allocating funding to the various programmes and projects under the Joint Vision. For non-earmarked contributions, the UNCT will make proposals to the DEPAC for their allocation to programmes and projects.
DEPAC: All other programmes and projects irrespective of whether they are partly or fully funded by the Sierra Leone MDTF shall be approved by the DEPAC. They fall under the same monitoring, evaluation and reporting arrangements as those governed by the Joint Vision (see Annex III of the Joint Vision).
