New UNDG MDTF Guidance Note

New York – The United Nations Development Group (UNDG) in March approved the “UNDG Guidance Note on Establishing, Managing and Closing Multi-Donor Trust Funds". The Guidance Note was developed based on existing guidance, policy and practices, and reflects lessons learned since the establishment of the first UN Multi-Donor Trust Fund (MDTF) in 2004. It contains useful tools such as outlines for the Concept Note for the establishment of an MDTF and for Steering Committee Terms of Reference, and the steps involved in the various phases of the MDTF life cycle.

The Guidance Note was prepared under the auspices of the UNDG Joint Funding Task Team with the participation of UNESCO, UNCTAD, UNDP, UNFPA, FAO, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN-HABITAT, UNIDO, WHO, WFP and the Multi-Donor Trust Fund Office.  It was introduced to a broader audience as part of the Joint Funding segment of the four UNDAF Regional Planning Workshops recently held in Bangkok, Kigali, Dakar and Panama City for participants from more than twenty UNDAF roll-out countries.
