As the on-going Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic continues to develop, the UN and WHO are committed to working together across all levels to provide support to countries, strengthen technical and operational networking and collaboration, and support operational coordination of the global response.
Transforming our world together
Forge paths and partnerships that unlock public and private capital
Supporting countries in accelerating progress towards the SDGs
The Joint SDG Fund is seen by the Secretary-General as an essential part of the reform of the UNDS. Referred to as the “muscle” for Resident Coordinators and a new generation of United Nations Country Teams, the Secretary-General is counting on Member States to financially incentivize a scaled-up response to the Sustainable Development Goals at country level by promoting a whole of government approach and by supporting collaboration amongst UN agencies and other development partners.
Strategic partnerships are critical for long-term success. Resources and networks are needed to accelerate the SDGs and get us closer to attaining the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
