UNEP - 10YFP Trust Fund

The United Nations Environment Programme has established a Trust Fund for sustainable consumption and production (SCP) programmes to mobilize voluntary contributions from multiple sources, including public/donor contributions, the private sector and other sources. The Trust Fund has the following elements:   
  1. The objectives of the Trust und is to receive and mobilize resources in a stable, sustained and predictable manner to develop sustainable consumption and production programmes in developing countries and countries with economies in transition, as appropriate, and to promote the transparent allocation of resources;  
  2. The trust fund is used to support the implementation of the 10-year framework of programmes in developing countries, such as by providing seed money for developing and implementing programme proposals;  
  3. Financing for the trust fund should not be provided at the expense of other high priority sustainable development activities being carried out by United Nations bodies;  
  4. Programme proposals from developing countries to the trust fund should meet the criteria specified below and allocation of the financing should take regional balance into account; 
  5. The United Nations Environment Programme, as the secretariat of the 10-year Framework of Programmes, was invited to act as trustee for the trust fund and to administer the fund;   
  6. Donors, the private sector and others are  encouraged to contribute to the trust fund, providing general support to the 10-year Framework of Programmes, as well as support to specific programmes and initiatives responding to the national and regional priorities of developing countries.

Who can apply (through project proposal) and receive funds from the Trust Fund? Governments, UN agencies, NGOs?

  • The main objective of the Trust Fund is to support the implementation of the 10-year framework of programmes in developing countries.
  • Governments, through the National Focal Point, will be able to apply. The NFP must be consulted, and the project must fit into one of the programmes.
  • NGOs could submit a project proposal. We need to set up a process for eligibility of projects submitted by NGOs. The nomination of focal points for stakeholders, as envisaged today, will ensure that major groups representatives at international and regional levels are part of the 10YFP. We may have to consider the direct nomination of a focal point from different NGOs, so that they are “registered” under the 10YFP and can apply to the Trust Fund.
  • The implementation of the 10YFP should be country driven.
  • UN agencies could be involved in the projects as executing agency in government projects. They would then receive the funds for project implementation in the country. 

The Secretariat of the 10 Year Framework of Programmes on Sustainable Consumption and Production (10YFP) organises calls for proposals to support the shift towards SCP. Governments and not-for-profit organizations in developing countries and countries with economies in transition are invited to submit proposals in response to these calls.
