To date the largest donor for SSC is Japan, which, under the Japan Human Resources Development Fund (JHRDF) (a cost-sharing arrangement between UNDP and the Government of Japan), has shown great interest in promoting SSC. A decision was taken by the Government of Japan to replace the JHRDF with the UNDP-Japan Partnership Fund (currently the Japan-UNDP Partnership Fund) in 2003.
