THE MAF: A SHORT HISTORY
▪
The 2010 MDG Summit
– Countries know what needs to be done to achieve the MDGs, but
progress in implementation is lacking or has slowed in many
sectors.
– Outcome document calls for an acceleration agenda for the MDGs
▪
MAF developed and tested over 2009-2010
– 14 countries and six MDGs
– UNDG MDG Task Force
▪
MAF formally endorsed in 2010 by UNDG
– UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and UNDG Chair Helen Clark
introduce it at the 2010 Summit
– UNDP corporate priority
– UNDG guidance to UNCTs
▪
Unlocking Progress: MDG Acceleration on the road to 2015
– Summarize and synthesize main lessons learned from the pilot
phase
– Growing body of country reports and experiences

WHAT IS THE MDG ACCELERATION FRAMEWORK?
Responding to national/local political determination to
tackle identified off-track MDGs
Drawing upon country experiences and ongoing processes to
identify and prioritize bottlenecks
interfering with the implementation of key
MDG interventions
Using knowledge-based good practices to determine
objective and feasible solutions for accelerating
MDG progress
Creating a partnership with identified roles for all relevant
stakeholders to jointly achieve MDG progress

SYSTEMATIC STEPS IN THE MAF
Identify, codify the
interventions required to
meet the MDG targets
Identify solutions
to form an MDG
Country Action
Plan that aligns
and focuses
stakeholders and
resources on
accelerating
MDG progress
Implement and
Monitor the
MDG Country
Action Plan to
ensure required
impact
Help identify and
prioritize MDG
bottlenecks

Nepalese Prospective towards MAF
Relating to Off Track
MDG Targets
• Proportion of population below minimum level of
dietary energy consumption,
• Proportion of underweight children 6–59 months,
• Proportion of stunted children 6–59 months,
• Survival rate to grade 5,
• Literacy rate for 15–24 year olds,
• Proportion of births attended by skilled
birth attendant,
• Proportion of population using an
improved sanitation facility.

LEADERSHIP & PARTNERSHIPS: CENTRAL IN MAFs
•
MAF process owned by the Government
•
The Resident Coordinator (RC) has a
crucial role in initiating, facilitating and
following up
•
All stakeholders who can contribute to
accelerating progress should be
partners – Government (across ministries
and national/sub-national levels), UN funds
and agencies (including UNCT), donors, civil
society, academia/think tanks and the
private sector
•
Important to involve civil society:
Reputed CSOs provide crucial inputs for the
analysis, help validate results and secure
buy-in, are potential partners in the
implementation and monitoring of the Action
Plan.

GOING BEYOND THE NATIONAL: COLOMBIA
National aggregates mask disparities by region and community
Addressing inequalities can be key for success; and politically critical
Local governments, CSOs, academia, and private sector often valuable partners
In both LDCs and MICs,
overcoming serious
inequalities is a challenge,
and an opportunity –
Colombia wishes to reduce
social divisions.
Activities customized by levels
where inequalities are most
evident.
Provincial and municipal MAFs
target different MDGs –
health, gender, poverty.
Such MAFs exploit degree of
decentralization, while
integrating with
national/regional plans.

LESSONS
ADDED VALUE
Government ownership and
coordination
Prioritizing within current
investment plans: Togo
Expert MAF team – national
and external – for quality
and coherence
Motivating cross-ministerial
collaboration: Uganda
Cross-sectoral and crossministerial engagement:
UNCT involvement: UNDG
endorsement
Highlighting local solutions:
Uganda
Bringing together different
partners and stand-alone
activities: Ghana, Tajikistan
Anchoring in existing plans
Helping implement laws,
roadmaps and policies: Tanzania
Participation of local
governments, CSOs and
NGOs
Indicating how best to adapt
existing tools: PNG
Learning – but not
duplicating – across
countries
Using available data
Addressing inequalities:
Colombia
Attracting partner interest:
Ghana, Niger, Belize…

FOLLOWING THROUGH WITH IMPLEMENTATION
 Country Actions:
 Identified neglected policy areas-Uganda addressed women’s right to
reproductive health choices
 Forged new partnerships- Colombia’s provincial governments partnered with the
private sector for job creation among vulnerable groups
Mobilized Resources- EU MDG Fund to support MAF Action Plans; and Niger’s
allocation of budgetary resources ($30 million) to implementation
 Strengthened advocacy- Ghana declared ‘national emergency on maternal
mortality’ and successfully brought new partners on board

UNDP/UNDG Actions:
 Cross-practice effort to help country offices support implementation; dedicated
Democratic Governance TTF (2011) to help remove governance and capacity
bottlenecks (e.g. Belize’s water board)
 Encouraging regional and global collaboration with development partners (MDG
Summit follow up conference in Tokyo; EU and others)
Incorporating into UNDAF Action Plan: Tanzania (DaO) and Lao PDR; MAF at
Regional UNDAF Trainings

IS THE MAF FOR YOU?
 MDG priorities established with
national political commitment to
tackle off-track targets
Criteria for assessing
the MAF value added
 Special country context facilitating
engagement of all actors and
implementation of the MAF Action
Plan
 Evidence of what works and what
doesn’t – at national and sub-national
levels - drawing from MDG-based
NDS’s/PRSPs, mid-term reviews and
others
 Possibility of linking to PRSP/NDP
consultations and preparation, as well
as to the CCA analysis and UNDAF
 UNCT capable of influencing policy
space in the country, and a strong
and respected partner of the
Government
