This operations manual establishes guidelines for the three funding windows under the SDRF. Development partners and the FGS recognize that the funding windows will initially run in parallel to on-going activities, funds and programmes. However, the SDRF will aim to facilitate information sharing on existing activities through its governance framework. Over time, financing may increasingly transition towards the SDRF framework as a preferred channel (as outlined in Compact Principle 5), based on the track record of the SDRF
This Operations Manual is not a legally binding document. Its purpose is to describe the governance structure and the operating principles, guidelines, and procedures for the day-to-day operations of the funding windows under the SDRF.
