The Sustainable Development Goals Fund (SDG-F)

is a development cooperation mechanism created in 2014 by the government of Spain and UNDP, on behalf of the UN system, to support sustainable development activities through integrated and multidimensional joint programmes.

It builds on the experience, knowledge, lessons learned and best practices of the previous MDG Achievement Fund (www.mdgfund.org, 2007-2013), while expanding its activities towards sustainable development and a higher attention on public-private partnerships. Gender and women’s empowerment is a cross-cutting priority in all our areas of work.

The SDG-F intends to act as a bridge in the transition from MDGs to SDGs providing concrete experiences on “how” to achieve a sustainable and inclusive world post 2015. More info (link to www.sdgfund.org)
