Multi-donor, special-purpose trust funds funnel cash to such large and challenging development issues such as HIV/AIDS, and post-conflict reconstruction efforts. These funds promote both donor-harmonisation and government ownership of aid programmes.
PwC's varied and extensive experience in trust fund management and governance has enabled us to structure a wide range of innovative trust funds. We can offer you advice and counsel on the entire life cycle of the funds from programming and start-up to operations oversight and audit.
We understand that even in the new aid environment ushered in by the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, donors and their partner governments sometimes have conflicting interests and objectives. However, because we are able to effectively leverage our far-reaching networks in both donor and recipient countries, we can act as an effective intermediary between all parties and help you "close the gap" between what may be competing goals.
