Our expertiseExpertise on pooled financing services for the SDGs

Flexible and Collaborative

Inter-agency pooled funding is a flexible, inclusive, and efficient way to finance the Sustainable Development Goals—making it possible for the United Nations development system to collaborate better and create inroads with new partners. In setting high standards for 2030 Agenda achievement, we leverage good pooled funding practices and step up action alongside a myriad of stakeholders to identify and put into action sustainable solutions for 21st century peacebuilding, development, and humanitarian contexts.

Efficiency, accountability, and innovation

The UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office administers and manages well-designed and professionally managed pooled funds that help address, at scale, humanitarian, peace, security, sustainable development, and climate challenges in contextually relevant ways. In doing so, we are the only United Nations office exclusively dedicated to the design and administration of robust, system-wide pooled finance vehicles that cover design, administration, data collection, fund management support, as well as other integrated services.
