Common risks identified in Global Fund projects

Global Fund projects are implemented in rapidly changing and complex operating environments. Despite their differences, there are ranges of contextual, operational and institutional risks that impact the risk profile of Global Fund-funded projects. The Risk Catalogue for Global Fund projects is a compilation of common risks faced by Global Fund-funded projects as reported by Programme Management Units, Country Offices, Regional Bureaus, audits, evaluations, and oversight. These risks are organised along the 8 UNDP ERM risk categories and can be used as a practical input to support the risk identification process during project design, planning, and risk reviews. For each possible risk, a list of potential contributing factors/causes is provided to help with risk identification and analysis. It is recommended to ensure risk statements are as specific as possible, as per guidance in the Risk Reporting and Recording section of this Manual, and some suggestions are provided on this in the risk catalogue. The risk catalogue expands on the following common risks identified in Global Fund projects:
