UN pooled financing: trends, innovation, results and the way forward
23 May 2019 -  For 15 years, the UN development system has used UN pooled financing as an instrument to promote UN coherence and advance global and national development goals. In 2018, UN Member States, as part of the landmark resolution on repositioning the UN development system, asked for the doubling of “well designed and professionally managed” UN pooled funds. The discussions around the Funding Compact have reiterated and further developed this commitment. This side event would be an occasion to share the perspectives of UN entities, Member States and other development partners, in best practices in UN pooled funding.
The discussion will address some key questions in the context of UN pooled financing:
What does it mean in practice “well designed and professionally managed” pooled funds?
How UN pooled funds enable better collaboration with and within the UN development system?
What reporting and data standards and systems are being developed to ensure the highest levels of transparency, accountability and tracking of development financing?
