UNDP Thematic Trust Funds - 2015 Annual Report




UNDP Thematic Trust Funds - 2015 Annual Report

January 17, 2017

The UNDP Thematic Trust Funds for Crisis Prevention and Recovery, Democratic Governance and the Environment were established in 2001. For 14 years, these thematic trust funds have funded UNDP country, regional and global initiatives, flexibly complementing core UNDP funding and investments by partner agencies aimed at similar development objectives. This report presents highlights from 2015, the final year of operation of the funds, which have transitioned in 2016 to a new funding window architecture, aligned with the integrated vision of the 2030 Agenda.

The report offers a retrospective on some of the major achievements of the thematic trust funds. All three thematic trust funds have fostered significant partnerships between UNDP and programme countries, non-governmental organisations and civil society, UN agencies, multilateral development organisations, academia and think-tanks, the private sector and donor partners. Results achieved would not have been possible without the support and partnership of longstanding contributors.
