results-oriented and people-centered UN programmes
This is how the SDG Fund brings together UN agencies, governments, businesses and civil society to advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We work on the ground with local partners to maximize our impact.
The UN development system consists of many specialized agencies. Each has unique capacities, expertise, and networks.
Public-private partnerships for SDGs
We work closely with our Private Sector Advisory Group. Our focus on partnerships through the UN is opening new opportunities for the public and private sectors to co-design, co-invest and co-implement programmes on the ground.
In order to achieve the SDGs by 2030, the private sector must be fully on board. Private companies bring creativity, resources and innovation.
Programme countries provide 25% of the resources
All our joint programmes are aligned with national priorities, as agreed by the UN and each national government in the UN Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF). Most country programmes contribute their own resources.
The 2030 Agenda is a multidimensional roadmap. It takes into account connecting factors, such as that lack of income negatively affects one’s health, education and livelihood.
More than 20 donors
National partners match 56% of our programme resources, increasing impact, ownership, relevance and sustainability. Every dollar invested in the SDG Fund has generated 2.36 dollars in the programme budget.
Women and girls make up more than half the world’s population and they are often more negatively impacted by poverty, climate change, food insecurity, lack of healthcare, and global economic crises.
What we do
