  • Addressed to LICs
  • Expanded MDGaF, aiming at complement funds for the whole IADGs
  • Participant donors: Spain, UK, Norway
  • Aims at supporting One Programme (or equivalent)
  • It is un-earmarked
  • It is meant to complement funds mobilised at the country level therefore there is a need form UNCTs to first make all efforts to raise funds locally
