Management Arrangements and Coordination

This is a joint programme, drawing on the combined expertise of four Participating UN Organisations (PUNOs): Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO); International Labour Organisation (ILO); UN Development Programme (UNDP) and World Food Programme (WFP). The Joint Programme will be coordinated by UNDP, with a specific Joint programme Management exclusively dedicated to its management. Each organisation will specifically contribute to one or more of the workstreams and specific pathways, based on their area of expertise. PUNOs will use a combination of partnership with local, national and international NGOs and direct implementation or programming. In the proposed Joint Programme, UNDP as the Convening Agency will be responsible for coordinating programmatic aspects, and the Administrative Agent (UNDP’s Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office) will be responsible for financial management using the pass-through modality, with each participating UN organization having programmatic and financial responsibility for the funds entrusted to it.

The National Programme Steering Committee (PSC) is the Joint Programme oversight and advisory authority, representing the highest body for strategic guidance, fiduciary and management oversight. It is responsible for overall programme governance bringing together participating UN organizations, donor community and the host government for the implementation of the Joint Programme. Advisory in nature, the PSC reviews and endorses the Joint Programme Document and annual work plans. It provides strategic direction and oversight, advises on allocation criteria for resources to programme management team as required, and reviews implementation progress and addresses problems. The PSC also receives progress reports, approves budget revisions/reallocations, notes evaluation and audit reports (published in accordance with each PUNOs’ disclosure policy), and initiates investigations if needed.

The PSC meets at least bi-annually. The PSC will include country representatives (CDs/RR/DRR) of all UN signatories of the Joint Programme Document, government and donor representatives. It will be co-chaired by the UN Resident Coordinator, a senior representative of the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (counterpart to ERRY) and a representative from the European Union/donors. Prior to the PSC there is a Head of Agency meeting to prepare key points for PSC consideration. The PSC is supported by a Joint Programme Management Unit, details of which follow.

There will be biannual technical coordination meetings will be held between PUNOs and donors, in addition to the SC meeting.
