STRATEGY FOR MDTFs Phase II (2008-11) Building on Achievements
Learning from Phase I Experience In a fluid and complex context, MDTFs need to be adaptive and strategic. Dynamic learning loops are critical. MDTFs need to support articulation of broader and coherent development strategy. MDTFs bring more values than money. Donor harmonization. Capacity building. Knowledge development and transfers.
An Approach to MDTF-N Phase II Sharpen ‘sector’ selectivity based on the receptivity to knowledge exploration (e.g., decentralization, sustainable livelihoods). Focus geographically on war-affected and least-developed areas (e.g., The Three Areas and the East). Adhere to Sudanese-led and owned program implementation.
An Approach to MDTF-S Phase II Continue to support a broad range of GoSS priorities, to assist in capacity building. Expand attention to State governments and below. Engage in broader dialogue on development strategy and policy framework.
MDTF Financing Needs for Phase II GoSS projects a financing gap of $2 billion. Of this, GoSS requests donor funding of $751 million through MDTF ($391 million in Phase I). GoNU projects a financing gap of $3.1 billion, but no specific request for MDTF. Given the GoSS request, parity would suggest doubling of MDTF-N from $234 million to about $450 million.
Unique Roles of MDTFs Beyond the obvious benefits, MDTF-N has created a joint space where GoNU and donors could agree on development programs and work in partnership. MDTF-S is the only large-scale instrument that works through GoSS institutions, thereby internalizing delivery of capacity building.
