Non-paper on Pooled Funding Mechanisms in
This non-paper focuses on pooled funding mechanisms in post-conflict situations, with an emphasis on those mechanisms that have been/are administered by either the World Bank or the UN. Specific attention will be paid to the financing of transition activities in post-conflict situations, i.e. rehabilitation and recovery activities that take place in the transition phase from humanitarian assistance to longer-term development cooperation. As such, this paper will answer four central questions:
1) What is the rationale for using pooled funding mechanisms in post-conflict situations?
2) What are the main lessons learned with regard to the implementation and use of
pooled funding mechanisms in post-conflict situations?
3) Which pooled funding mechanisms are best suited to be used in what phase of the
post-conflict reconstruction process, and who should be in the lead during these
4) What measures can be taken to ensure a more effective, harmonious use of pooled
funding mechanisms in post-conflict situations, specifically in relation to the financing
of transition activities?
