The Joint SDG Fund is seen by the Secretary-General as an essential part of the United Nations Development System reform. Referred to as the “muscle” for Resident Coordinators and 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.

2022 Annual Report

As the United Nations flagship global fund, the Joint SDG Fund operates on a two-fold strategic mandate to supercharge the United Nations Development System (UNDS) to be fit for purpose, and, in turn, to catalyse systemic transitions at the country level in areas of integrated policy and financing to accelerate the SDGs.
