The Budget Process of the FCPF –

  • Review
  • FCPF budgets – for both the Readiness Fund (RF) and Carbon Fund (CF) – are based on the World Bank fiscal year.
  • FY09 = July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009. FY10 begins this July 1.
  • Budgets are to be approved annually.
  • FY09 Readiness Budget approved in October 2008. No budgets yet for the Carbon Fund.
slide5

The Budget Process of the FCPF –

  • Review
  • The FY10 Budget of the Readiness Fund is submitted and proposed for approval in this meeting of the PC.
  • As part of approval of the RF budget, the PC approves the ‘Shared Costs’ of activities that cut across both the RF and the CF (e.g., the costs of the FCPF Secretariat).
  • The Carbon Fund Participants Committee will review and approve the FY10 Annual Budget for the Carbon Fund at October 2009 meeting.
slide6

slide10

The Budget Process of the FCPF –

  • Secretariat and Trustee Functions

Readiness Fund Administration

Functions related to the World Bank role as Readiness Fund Trustee, including:

  • Preparing budgets, business plans and financial projections
  • Preparation of the FCPF Annual Report for the October Annual Meeting
  • Accounting, financial audits, contributions management and legal services to the Readiness Trust Fund

slide11

The Budget Process of the FCPF –

  • Secretariat and Trustee Functions

Carbon Fund Administration

  • Similar Trustee functions as with the FCPF Readiness Fund
  • Presented for approval of the Carbon Fund Participants at the meeting in October
slide12

The Budget Process of the FCPF –

  • Shared Facility Costs
  • ‘Shared Costs’ across both the Readiness Fund and Carbon Fund include
    • FCPF Secretariat and
    • REDD Methodology Support
  • Consistent with the Charter, the Carbon Fund would assume 35% of these costs over time
  • Cost sharing is reflected in the current business plan and FY09 budget
  • However, appropriate phasing of the Shared Costs borne by Carbon Fund Participants to be decided in this Meeting.
slide13

II. Status of the FY09 Budget

Topics

  • Review of Contributions and Cash Flow Projections
  • FY09 Expenditures and Commitments to Date
slide14

Status of the FY09 Budget –

  • Review of Contributions
slide15

II. Status of the FY09 Budget –

Expenditures and Commitments to Date

When reviewing the FY09 budget and expenditures:

  • First Readiness Fund budget was very much a projection
  • Final FY09 expenditures are not available until July – will be reflected in Annual Report
  • However, based on expenses through April, it appears that the FY09 approved budget was a reasonable projection of costs
  • FMT does expect an underrun of about 14 percent compared to the original budget, but we have some additional costs that may offset this underrun.
slide16

II. Status of the FY09 Budget –

Expenditures and Commitments to Date

When reviewing the FY09 budget and expenditures:

  • With greater demand for Participation – slower initial roll out of readiness activities in specific countries
  • FMT was strengthened over FY09, but this has taken time; most positions now hired. It also took time to build World Bank country teams, which led to lower initial staff costs
  • TAP costs (REDD Methodology Support) have been lower; originally 5 TAPs were planned for FY09, but only 3 organized for R-PIN and R-Plan (R-PP) review.
  • Increase in Fund Administration compared to original plan; higher than expected fiduciary costs.

  • Options and FMT Recommendations
  • PC Decisions

Topics

slide19

III. FY10 Budget Proposal – Challenges and Trade-offs

Within the Context of FCPF Objectives…

  • Maximizing the learning potential of this unique partnership
  • Moving quickly to develop lessons from REDD prior to 2012

What are the Main Challenges and Trade-offs for FY10?

  • How to handle demand from 37 countries, when the Readiness Mechanism was planned for 20 countries?
  • Financing country readiness activities at an adequate level, and with appropriate mix of services
  • Balancing the need for immediate funding to support REDD Country Participants with cash-flow projections and pledged amounts
    • focus of next presentation on Sources/Uses of Funds
slide20

III. FY10 Budget Proposal

FY10 Budget (in 5-year Business Plan)

  • Includes two programs already selected by the PC last October – Capacity Building Program for Indigenous Peoples and Contingency ($200K each for 5 years)

Footnote 1. Part of the 'Shared Facility Costs' to be shared with the FCPF Carbon Fund as per the Charter. FMT Recommendation on Shared Costs reflected in the numbers.

slide21

III. FY10 Budget Proposal

  • Closing date of December 31, 2020 requires us to plan some costs for the long term. But many services to REDD Country Participants fit within a 5-7 year time frame and business plan.
  • Services to REDD Country Participants, including country grants, are expected to comprise about 87% of total contributions over the long term.
  • About 9% of expected contributions of the Readiness Fund will pay for FCPF Secretariat (supporting both the Readiness and Carbon Funds).
  • Trust Fund administration of the Readiness Fund will comprise about 4% of expected contributions.

Comparison with FY9-13 Business Plan

Estimated Expenses for Five Year Business Plan (FY09-13), as of October 2008:

Current Estimated Expenses for Five Year Business Plan (FY09-13):

Current Estimated Expenses with FMT Recommended Option:

II. FY10 Budget Proposal

Profile of Grants and Services to REDD Country Participants

(Based on Grant Commitments to 20+5 Countries, some support to additional 12 Countries selected in Round 3)

slide24

III. FY10 Budget Proposal –

Examples of Expected Costs

Costs Budgeted for Technical Advisory Panels

  • Experience is that fewer days of work per TAP member, at a somewhat lower average rate than planned are required. However, with increased complexity of moving to R-PPs from R-PINs, panels must be larger and more diverse.
  • FY09-13 Business Plan included five panels per year in FY09-11 and three per year after that.
  • But more likely/updated scenario is that FCPF will need more, continuous support for a longer time period than initial plans; hence the number of panels is now projected steadily at 5 per year over the medium term – decreasing in FY16 to 4 or less per year.
slide25

III. FY10 Budget Proposal –

Examples of Expected Costs

Annual Cost of Participants Assembly & Participants Committee Meetings – Increase in Meeting Costs with 37 REDD Participants

37 Countries

slide26

III. FY10 Budget Proposal –

Examples of Expected Costs

Ensuring the representation of Forest-Dependent Indigenous Peoples and other Forest Dwellers

  • Travel costs to PA and PC Meetings for IP Observer are included in the Secretariat budget (as per the FCPF Charter)
  • A staff assistant position, reporting to the Chair of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) and focused on FCPF and REDD, was approved last October by the PC for the Secretariat budget. Not utilized in FY09, but is included in the FY10 budget.
  • FMT views both items as essential to the effective operation of the FCPF
slide27

III. The FY10 Budget Proposal –

Options and FMT Recommendations

Options Proposed for Treatment of Shared Costs

As we know, over time 65% of Shared Costs are borne by the RF and 35% by the CF, unless the PC decides otherwise.

In FY10, the FMT proposes three options:

  • Option 1: Charging 100 percent of Shared Facility Costs to the Readiness Fund in FY10, and phasing the share to 65 percent from FY11 onwards.
  • Option 2: Implementing the 65/35 ratio of Shared Facility Costs immediately in FY10.
  • Option 3: A ‘split’ of the above two options, with 100% of Secretariat costs charged to the RF in FY10 and only 65% of the REDD Methodology Spt.
slide28

III. The FY10 Budget Proposal –

Options and FMT Recommendations

Recommendations of the FMT

  • Given that the Carbon Fund is not Operational during FY09, the FMT recommends that the Readiness Fund finance 100% of the Shared Facility Costs in FY09.
  • For FY10, the FMT Recommends Option 3, which ‘splits’ between Option 1 and Option 2 in FY10. This is a net increase of $5-$600,000 in costs in FY10 relative to the option of full (65/35) sharing of costs in FY10.
  • Taking into account the options selected by the PC, the FMT recommends approval of the balance of the FY10 Budget as proposed.
