Signing of UNSDPF



The United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership Framework 2019 – 2023 (UNSDPF) was signed today, between the Royal Government of Bhutan (RGoB) and the United Nations System in Bhutan. Through this Framework, both parties have committed to engage in a strategic partnership to improve lives of the people of Bhutan and to ensure that no one is left behind. The total resource allocation for the UNSDPF 2019 – 2023 cycle is estimated at USD 120 million, a 40 percent increase in the allocation compared to the current 2014 – 2018 cycle.

The UN System in Bhutan will work closely with all stakeholders to support the RGoB in realizing the 12th Five-year Plan objectives and goals and the Sustainable Development Goals. The UNSDPF becomes effective on 01 January 2019 and it will formally be launched next month, together with the Gross National Happiness Commission.
