Project Description

As per the Terms of Reference (ToR) of the UN-REDD Programme Fund, the roles and function of the Secretariat will be considered by the Executive Board at its first meeting. The responsibilities of the Secretariat as provided in the ToRs are listed below:

1. Support to the UN-REDD governing bodies and the overall operations of the Fund – it will advise the Executive Board on strategic priorities, programmatic and financial allocations and will in particular organize the programming and appraisal processes.

2. The Secretariat is the central point of contact for the UN-REDD programme and liaises with other REDD+ initiatives. This includes liaising with existing and potential donors in order to mobilize funds.

3. The Secretariat facilitates planning and the development and management of consolidated reporting, monitoring and evaluation frameworks of the Programme, raising awareness of, and promoting the UN-REDD Programme and it provides vital information for external partners.

4. The Secretariat also facilitates interagency collaboration and communication, to ensure the Programme is implemented effectively.


As per the ToRs of the UN-REDD Programme Fund, the budget allocation to cover the costs of the Secretariat and governance of the Programme will be approved by the Executive Board (and until it is established by the Interim Committee), and will be charged to the UN-REDD Fund account as direct costs. During the implementation of the new UN-REDD Strategy, these costs will be adjusted so as to (i) be aligned with UNDG guidelines and thresholds of 3%, and (ii) duly reflect the complexity and multi-stakeholder nature of the UN-REDD Programme. Priority for fund allocation will be given to programmes, making sure the requisite costs of providing necessary policy and technical support to partner countries are covered over the total duration of their programmes. In case there are insufficient funds, the EB will maximize fund allocation to policy and technical support to partner countries
