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. The Secretary-General referred, in his December 2017 report, to the Joint SDG Fund as the “muscle” for Resident Coordinators and a new generation of United Nations Country Teams to help countries to deliver the SDGs.
Through the Joint SDG Fund, the Secretary-General is counting on Member States to financially incentivize a scaled-up response to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at country level by promoting a whole of government approach and by supporting collaboration amongst UN agencies and other development partners.
