In December 2013, the UN Development Group established a ‘Delivering Results Together’ Fund (DRT Fund). Having the QCPR as its primary mandate, the DRT Fund is designed to support countries applying the Delivering as One approach by providing programme resources to fill the identified funding gaps for the achievement of development results. By supporting only Delivering as One countries, the DRT Fund will increase UN coherence at country level and will promote strengthening of linkages between normative and operational development work of the UN. It will also increase the focus on partnerships both at global and country levels. The underpinning principle for the DRT Fund is a strong tripartite partnership between programme countries, donor partners and the UN organizations.

The outcome of the DRT Fund is “contribution to the effective achievement of sustainable development results under One Programmes in line with national priorities in selected DaO countries”. The attainment of the main outcome will be pursued through the achievement of three inter-related outputs:

  • Increased coherence of the UN system’s development response at the national level
  • Strengthened partnerships between governments, the UN system and donor partners
  • Stronger normative and operational linkages within One Programmes in selected DaO countries



The DRT Fund governance arrangements are outlined in the Fund’s Terms of Reference. The ‘Delivering Results Together’ Fund will be governed by a DRT Fund Steering Committee at the global level having oversight and management responsibilities. Counselling and strategic advisory role will be performed by the DRT Fund Consultative Group. Coordination and technical support will be provided by the DRT Fund Secretariat performed by the UN Development Operations Coordination Office, and the administrative and financial management function will be fulfilled by the DRT Fund Administrator – UNDP Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office.



Countries’ eligibility for the contribution from the DRT Fund will be defined on the basis of the DRT Fund outputs, with the following key eligibility criteria being the basis for assessment by the DRT Fund Steering Committee:

  • Country status – LICs and Lower MICs
  • Adoption of the Delivering as One approach as supported by the Standard Operating Procedures
  • Clear linkages between normative and operational development work
  • Fully functioning One Fund – with available commitments or deposits from other donors, including governments’ cost-sharing

Each of these criteria is further explained in the Programme Document for the DRT Fund.

Countries approved eligible will receive contributions from the DRT Fund as defined on the basis of allocation criteria.



Contributions to the DRT Fund will be encouraged both from donor partners and programme countries. The DRT-F is a global funding facility supporting countries with un-earmarked resources. Thus, its focus is multi-year, un-earmarked contributions. However, high-level thematic/sector-level earmarking will be considered in consultation with each potential donor. Targeted resource mobilization activities are undertaken by the DRT Fund Steering Committee in order to ensure a broader partnership base with resources made available to countries. Contributions to the DRT Fund will be made on the basis of legal arrangement to be signed between the donor and the DRT fund Administrator on behalf of the DRT Fund Steering Committee.
