The Joint 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 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 Fund, the Secretary General is counting on Member States to financially incentivize a scaled-up response to the SDGs at country level by promoting a whole of government approach and by supporting collaboration amongst UN agencies and other development partners.

Building on the interdependent nature of the SDGs, the Joint Fund is designed to provide resources through Resident Coordinators for the policy and programme investments that help countries unblock major policy bottlenecks that hinder progress on the 2030 Agenda goals.
