Pooled fundingPooled finance and UN reform
Inter-agency pooled funds are a unique tool for delivering joint responses and direct resources to programmes focused on SDG achievement. Both make pooled funds an important part of the current United Nations reform process with inter-agency financing mechanisms for organizational leadership, UN Development System, and Member States to improve support to multi-partner coalitions, so national governments, civil society, and the private sector can actively work together in search of sustainable solutions.
Pooled financing is an effective instrument for improving collaboration and reducing programmatic fragmentation and, as a major tenet of the reform process, covers humanitarian, peace and security, and sustainable development. As the UN centre of expertise on pooled funding, the UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office works to improve the quality of investment services for all partners, across the UN broad spectrum of action.
