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.
Multi-Partner Trust Funds
More than ever, the UN system is stepping up its efforts to enhance coherence and efficiency at the country and global levels and to increase joint UN activities. Against this background and in the context of humanitarian, transition, reconstruction and development programmes, the UN system, national authorities and donors are establishing Multi-Donor Trust Funds (MDTFs) and Joint Programmes (JPs) that use the pass-through fund management model.

About UNDP's donors
UNDP's bilateral development partners have made strong endorsements to help poorer countries to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, and play a crucial role in promoting and financing strategies that will enhance the capacity of developing countries to attain the MDGs. To increase its development effectiveness, UNDP is strengthening its partnerships with the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of OECD, collaborating with the members of the DAC to promote the MDGs at the global, regional and country level.
