Securing adequate levels of predictable financing is the linchpin for the success of UNFPA’s new Strategic Plan (2018-2021) and its programmes. It is also is critical to UNFPA’s ability to keep pace with the growing demands for its services around the world, to fully integrate the ICPD agenda into national development strategies, and to the comparative advantage it brings to implementing Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.

With the adoption of the new Strategic Plan 2018-21, there is great momentum to boost the political and financial support of member states for predictable and sustainable financing in order to achieve the three ambitious transformative results, and to contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

In line with the QCPR 2017 (A/RES/71/243), ongoing reform proposals for the UN Development System (UNDS), and Executive Board decisions, UNFPA has enhanced dialogues with member states on how to fund the development results agreed in the Strategic Plan. The goal of the structured funding dialogues is to arrive at a more diverse coalition of donors, as well as predictable and commensurate financing for the realization of universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights for the next three cycles of the strategic plan towards 2030.  

The structured funding dialogues provide a unique platform for member states to gain greater understanding of the funding situation of UNFPA at various points in the year, to exchange on ways to better link results to resources, and to discuss progress of the instruments central to UNFPA funding architecture within the broader framework of the SG Funding Dialogue and Compact.

All documents and materials on structured funding dialogues are available below, organized by date.
