The Joint Financing Arrangement (JFA) has been designed as a tool to help aid practitioners involved in multi-donor cooperation. It can be used as an instrument to design or redesign the structure of such cooperation. Because of its versatility and flexibility, the JFA can be used for a broad range of aid modalities (budget support, the pooling of funds or projects). The goal of the JFA is to provide practical support to the field in the often time-consuming process of harmonisation.
