This document presents the Terms of Reference of the Systematic Observations Financing Facility (SOFF) UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund (UN MPTF).
The SOFF Terms of Reference are the result of an intensive two-year participatory process to which many stakeholders contributed. They reflect the outcomes of the SOFF potential Funders’ Forums that took place in March, June, and September 2021.
The document provides the basis for the Memorandum of Understanding for the establishment of the SOFF as a UN MPTF and for the administrative arrangements for financial contributions to the Facility. The SOFF Terms of Reference will serve as the basis for the SOFF initial pledging and subsequent resource mobilization. Future amendments to the Terms of Reference will be coordinated and approved by the SOFF Steering Committee once the Facility is established.
