Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1 Trust fund structure and resources should be made up to match both the transformation ambitions of the Agenda and the complexities and diversity of interests in the JSJP itself. In order to achieve this we recommend for a justice and security trust fund to have separate bodies for respectively governance and management, as is now common practice in Europe in both public and private sector.
2 With respect to PBF our recommendation is that it should have a role equal to that of other contributors, i.e. it should channel its funds through the trust fund on equal terms with Government and donors. With respect to UNDP our recommendation is for it to serve, not as the only but as an alternative source of implementation management service for trust fund recipients and contributing organizations.
