The Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) is a UN centre of expertise on pooled financing mechanisms. It supports development effectiveness and UN coherence through the efficient, accountable and transparent design and administration of innovative pooled financing instruments as well as provision of advisory services for fund operations.
Housed within UNDP, the MPTF Office is firewalled from all UN implementing entities, UNDP included. The MPTF Office has put in place a number of tools and systems to support its fund administration services, see the MPTF Office GATEWAY (http://mptf.undp.org/).
In 2012, the Government of Mali requested the MPTF Office to develop a national climate fund to combine financing from bilateral and multilateral sources as well as from the public and private sectors.
The Ministry of Environment and Sanitation developed a National Strategy on Climate Change (SNCC) in consultation with public and private sector partners. This holistic vision resulted in the establishment of the Institutional Framework on Climate Change (SNCC - Strategic Area I) headed by a National Committee.
The implementation of the SNCC requires the alignment of various sectoral initiatives to be undertaken by a large number of stakeholders at national and local levels. The Mali Climate National Trust Fund’s objective is to integrate these initiatives and to foster a coordinated implementation of the strategic framework.
To support the capacity building of the Fund, the MPTF Office seeks the services of a highly qualified Climate Financing Specialist International Consultant to assist and reinforce the Mali Climate Trust Fund’s Technical Secretariat capacity in its planning, operation, evaluation and reporting. The ultimate goal is to allow the Malian Government to assume the main responsibility of the management of the Fund in a few years’ time. This is a home-based consultancy with 2-3 field missions in Mali. All travel related cost will be covered by German Society for International Cooperation, Ltd (GIZ).
