Overview About Multi-Partner Trust Funds
Supporting UN Reform
MDTFs employ major concepts, approaches and principles embodied in the Aid Effectiveness Agenda and the United Nations Reform initiative of “Delivering as One”. They constitute a flexible and efficient mechanism for mobilizing funding resources and for providing predictable funding for achieving national and global priorities such as the MDGs. As laid out in the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and the Accra Agenda for Action, MDTFs emphasize:
MDTFs have a number of key advantages, including:
MDTFs facilitate the delivery of “peace dividends” to populations that have suffered from conflict and crises. This is mostly done through the expeditious implementation of recovery and reconstruction activities. There is increasing evidence that UN MDTFs, to-date all administered by the UNDP MPTF Office, have enabled UN agencies (along with their implementation partners such as Governments and NGOs) to speedily implement agreed project/programme activities using their own financial regulations and rules.
The MPTF Office supports and promotes the “Delivering as One” mechanism that enables the effective and expedient coordination, planning and management of development activities involving varied stakeholders—national governments, donors, UN agencies and other implementing partners including the ultimate beneficiaries, the affected populations.
UNDP (on behalf of the UN Organizations) and the World Bank are administering a broad range of MDTFs. The 2008 UN World Bank Partnership Framework agreement recognizes their complementary strengths, capacities and mandates to support national authorities and their populations. It lays down guidelines for enhancing and reinforcing the effectiveness and impact of their respective MDTF operations through mutual cooperation.
Complete transparency on all aspects of its activities - such as MDTF establishment, assistance strategy, governance, decision making, donor contributions, transfers to Participating Organizations, project implementation status, emerging results, evaluations ...etc has been a fundamental tenet of the MPTF Office ever since its inception.
Any stakeholder, and for that matter anyone, with access to a computer and internet, can log on to the MPTF Office GATEWAY and read and/or down load all or any specific information needed on MDTFs administered by the Office at any given time, anywhere in the world.
The MPTF Office GATEWAY displays real time data, with a maximum time lag of two hours. It allows Participating UN Organizations to extract and/or upload annual expenditure data using their respective financial information systems in a spreadsheet format.
Supported by a powerful search engine, the GATEWAY is a dynamic and ever growing library. It contains more than 9600 documents, legal agreements and periodic updates down to the project level.
The MPTF Office GATEWAY is a valuable tool for forging cooperation and communications between the MPTF Office and all its partners. To hone this tool and increase its efficiency and effectiveness, the Office plans to continuously streamline the reporting process, improve information flows, facilitate expedient archiving and recording of data, reduce costs, and make the system ever-more transparent.
In discharging its fund administration accountabilities, the MPTF Office relies on:
It ensures that the governing bodies of individual MDTFs – the Steering Committees - are kept continuously informed of the status of MDTF operations. The MPTF Office GATEWAY is the tool that provides vital information to all stakeholders, particularly the governance and the decision-making bodies.
Recognizing the inextricable link between accountability and transparency, the MPTF Office has added some new and enhanced features to its GATEWAY, including:
The GATEWAY features also allow:
Individual users can also customize their review (using My GATEWAY) according to their respective interests, needs and profiles.
The MPTF Office’s AA accountabilities is guided by the UNDG AA Protocol and the related legal documents and is based on the UNDP Administrator’s policy directive on UNDP’s AA accountabilities. The Executive Coordinator, MPTF Office, reporting to the Assistant Administrator and Director of the Bureau of Management is accountable for UNDP’s fund administration activities.
