Capitalizing on the successes and lessons learned from the previous UN Joint Programme on “Sustaining livelihoods affected by the Aral Sea disaster”, four UN Agencies in Uzbekistan (UNDP, UNESCO, UNFPA and UNV) have launched a new UN Joint Programme “Building the resilience of communities affected by the Aral Sea disaster through a Multi-Partner Human Security Trust Fund for the Aral Sea Region”. The Joint Programme will be implemented through joint funding from the participating UN agencies and the UN Human Security Trust Fund.
The Programme aims to mitigate inter-connected risks to human security and building the resilience of communities affected by the Aral Sea Disaster through an integrated and multi-level approach as well as facilitating sustainable financial support through the establishment of a multi-partner human security Fund for the Aral Sea. The main objectives of the programme are to i) address the human security needs of the population affected by the Aral Sea disaster at local and national levels and ii) establish a well-coordinated financial mechanism for implementing and sustainable financing of human security initiatives to promote and mainstream the human security approach in the region through the creation of the Multi-Partner Human Security Trust Fund for the Aral Sea Region (MPHSTF). The new Joint Programme further integrates the human security concept that proved to be effective in addressing human security challenges faced by individuals and communities affected by the Aral Sea disaster.
Within the objective on establishing a well-coordinated financial mechanism for implementing and sustainable financing of human security initiatives as a way to promote and mainstream the human security approach in the region and in line with the approved AWP for 2018, the project plans to hire an International Consultant, who will assist the project with the MPHSTF establishment issues and share knowledge on international experience on operationalizing pooled financial mechanisms with the Joint Program team members, UNCT, key government partners of the project, civil society members and other project stakeholders.
