The UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework
12 June 2022
Rooted in the Reform of the United Nations (UN) development system, the new UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) 2022–2026
reflects the changing dynamics and needs of the country, the region, and the world, as well as an evolved UN response to address remaining and emerging development challenges at the national and subnational level in the country and in partnership with the Government of the KSA. The UNSDCF 2022–2026 is a dynamic and living document that aims to enable the UN development system’s response to emerging challenges. It represents an agreement as to the contributions of the UNCT to the pursuit of the KSA’s Vision 2030, which the Government aims to achieve by the end of 2030:
Accelerate the KSA’s path to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs);
Provide clear and strategic direction and prioritization of the collective work of participating agencies, funds, and programs (AFPs) in supporting national priorities and needs; and
Construct an accountability framework for the inclusive and participatory monitoring of progress towards key milestones and the evaluation of results.
