Funding and delivery
Where our money comes from and what we spend it on
UNDP Albania partners with a number of international development organizations which provide the majority of funding for our programme areas as articulated in the Government of Albania-United Nations Programme of Cooperation for Sustaibale Development 2016-2021.
Funding for UNDP also comes from the UN Coherence Fund, which is is the main funding mechanism for the Programme of Cooperation for Sustainable Development. As a common pool of resources, it allows the UN to direct funds to the highest priorities of the Programme of Cooperation as determined by the Government and the United Nations.
The UNDP Multi-Donor Trust Fund Office has been appointed as the administrative agent of the Albania UN Coherence Fund. UNDP's core resources are used as seed funding to kick start programmes, demonstrate initial results and to leverage funding for scaling up of critical interventions. Thus, our core resources are used to leverage our technical and managerial expertise and to provide a programmatic framework for our partners to make investments into strategic areas of support.
