Fund for the Elimination of Doping in Sport
Specific funding has been set aside to assist governments to develop or implement effective anti-doping programs in accordance with the International Convention against Doping in Sport.

LogoSport-web2.jpg The Fund for the Elimination of Doping in Sport, made up of contributions, gifts or bequests from Member States, private or public bodies and individuals as well as revenue from fundraising activities, will be used to establish effective anti-doping programmes across the world.

The first session of the Conference of Parties to the Convention identified three areas for the investment of the Fund. The highest priority was attached to education projects focusing on young people and sports organisations. Second, States Parties can apply for assistance with the development of legislation, regulation, policies and administrative practices for the purposes of complying with the Convention. Thirdly, funding is earmarked for mentoring and capacity development programmes, particularly among least developed or low income States Parties. The Fund can also be used to cover some of the functioning costs of the Convention.

In 2008, the UNESCO Secretariat will publish a handbook which will outline the process by which the Fund will be managed. This document will explain the application process and will include application forms and other model documents. The Handbook will also clarify a range of administrative matters and the basis on which decisions will be made. However, it is important to emphasise that only States Parties may make applications for funding, in accordance with Article 18 of the Convention.
