UNDP and the UN
As part of its mandate, UNDP has a key co-ordinating role in the United Nations Development Group (UNDG).
UNDP is helping to reinforce joint action on development in such forums as the Economic and Social Council and the General Assembly of the United Nations. Over the past years it has played an important role in fostering coordination in summits such as Financing for Development 2002 and the World Summit on Sustainable Development 2002.
UNDP acts as fund administrator for the UN system. In particular, the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) provides a one-stop shop with focused support and service to UN Country Teams (UNCTs), national governments and donors. It enhances the UN’s accountability for its growing role in MDTFs that use the pass-through fund-management modality established in the context of humanitarian, transition, reconstruction and development programmes. The GATEWAY provides real-time data refreshed every two hours for staff of participating UN Organizations and for stakeholders in country and at headquarters.
This online portal allows open, comprehensive public access to data on more than 6,000 active UNDP projects, along with more than 8,000 outputs or results.
Multi-partner trust funds (MPTFs) allow the UN system to ramp up efforts to enhance coherence and efficiency at the country and global levels, and to increase coordinated UN system-wide implementation.
