UNPRPD Fund is governed by two bodies – the Policy Board and the Management Committee.
The Policy Board is responsible for setting the strategic direction of UNPRPD Fund and providing strategic and financial oversight. It is comprised of high-level representatives from all participating UN organizations, UNPRPD donors, and chairs of IDA and IDDC. The Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office Director and UNPRPD Technical Secretariat Manager are both ex officio members of the Policy Board, and the Chair of the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, UN Special Envoy on Disability and Accessibility, and the UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities are invited observers in Policy Board meetings.
The Management Committee is a standing committee of the Policy Board responsible for resource allocation and programmatic and management oversight. It is comprised of representatives from nine UN participating organizations, UNPRPD Fund donors, IDA, and IDDC with the Senior Portfolio Manager for the MPTF Office and UNPRPD Technical Secretariat Manager serving as ex officio members.
The UNPRPD Technical Secretariat, hosted by UNDP, manages UNPRPD Fund resources, as well as its operations, programmes, partnership and coordination, processes, communications, knowledge development, reporting, and resource mobilization.
