Report on the financial status of GSP, including the Healthy Soils Facility and report by countries and other partners: for information and decision | Vanja Maslovarik, GSP Secretariat

  1. 1. Financial Resources Vanja Maslovarik, FAO
  2. 2. Support GSP, Support Life!
  3. 3. Where do we stand today with the FUNDS? • No Funds, no Plenary Assembly! (at present paid by FAO, and in a minor proportion also by one of the donors) • No Funds, no country activities! (at present paid by the donors and by FAO • No Funds, no GSP Secretariat! (at present paid mostly by FAO)​ • No Funds, no implementation of the World Soil Day! (at present paid by the donors and by FAO) • No Funds, no implementation of the VGSSM! (at present not started…no funding from donors yet)​ • ….
  4. 4. TRUST FUNDS Healthy Soil Facility The GSP Secretariat is the Budget Holder of the Trust Funds As of 1 June 2018, only ~USD600 000 are left and available for the pillar country activities in the upcoming 20 months. (last year this time we had a balance USD1.6 mil) What is the GSP Secretariat concrete plan for the way forward?
  5. 5. Potential New Proposals for beyond 2018  The Russian Federation committed to support activities worth USD2 mil on numerous GSP activities;  Germany committed to support activities worth USD1.7 mil on Soil and Nutrition;  The EU committed to support activities worth USD1.5 mil on numerous GSP activities;  China showed interest in supporting GSP outputs, too for an amount of USD2 mil.
  6. 6. How much funds overall • GSP operates since 2013 and the programme has been planned until 2018 (see Healthy Soil Programme Document); The New Programme Document is being drafted using the inputs from the countries via the Global and Regional Soil Partnerships and their implementation plans; • Progressive and constant increase in the financial resources has been ensured; • We have mobilized in the last year period 2017/2018 an amount of USD764 063: Phosagro, Switzerland, IFA, FAO; • The funds mobilized for the period 2013-2018 amount to ~USD11 mil; TOT. USD11 MLN
  7. 7. PROUD OF OUR DELIVERY • Budget for the period 1 January 2018- 31 December 2019 ~USD3,5 mil; • Delivery already occurred in 5 years ~USD7,6 mil; • At the present date very fast delivery rates i.e. fast implementation i.e. in 2018 in only 5 months USD 0,6 was spent!!! ~ 17% of the available budget Budget Spent; 6 • Therefore the remaining budget (as of today) of only USD2,9 mil (RP, TF and TCPs) for 19 months is actually a constrain, considering the needs of the countries and the capacity of GSP to deliver. Budget Available (2018-2019); 3,5 Budget Spent (<=2017); 7,6 Budget Available (june2018-2019); 2,9 in the first 5 months of 2018; 0,6 Budget Spent (<=2017); 7,6

  11. 11. Funds with the GSP Secretariat At present, the GSP Secretariat is within the FAO Land and Water Division  The national FAO Representatives; Regional Soil Partnerships; the country approach is very strong in GSP; Country Programme Frameworks; FAO Strategic Framework priorities;  The advantage of coordinated management of the GSP is that there is efficiency in cost sharing of many corporate costs of FAO such as the audit, reporting mechanisms, staff, support costs, etc. GSP Secretariat/ITPS Country Driven Approach/ Regional Discussions
  12. 12. Matter of Trust Why providing funds to GSP? • Keep soils on the global agenda; • Prevent and remediate soil pollution; • Contribute to achieve the SDGs; • Boost soil health; • Restore degraded soils; • Have an Intergovernmental Technical Panel on Soils; • Awareness raising on soils;
