ResultsResults for the SDGs

The MPTF Office monitors progress towards results using the following methods:

Results-based-management system. Well-designed trust funds rely on solid results-based management frameworks that integrate strategies, people, resources, processes, and measurements to improve decision making, transparency and accountability. To facilitate results across the entire portfolio, the MPTF Office developed a results-based management (RBM) system to improve the way we track results.

Reporting results. Every fund administered by the MPTF Office reports annually (April) on primary results and progress made against intended outcomes, as per UNSDG guidelines. The annual report informs partners about results achieved to date and how their resources made a difference. It also assists governing bodies in setting the direction of each fund or deciding how to pivot. 

Tracking financial allocations towards SDG achievement. This dashboard feature is available for a selection of funds, but will be expanded across our portfolio. Partners should use this tool to track financial allocations against specific SDGs and targets through pooled funds.


Inter-agency pooled funds facilitate the achievement of outcomes by providing predictable and efficient financing

The MPTF Office works continuously with partners on improving pooled fund efficiency and effectiveness, and in coordinating UN efforts to share best practices on developing a set of common management features for all development-related inter-agency pooled funds. This critical aspect of UN Funding Compact commitments—the mutual pact made between Member States and UN organizations—is our way of helping the UN improve how it is funded and delivers results.
