This United Nations Sustainable Development Framework (UNSDPF) articulates the collective vision of the UN system in Bhutan for 2019-2023.
Achieving Agenda 2030 and graduating from the Least Developed Country (LDC) category in a sustainable manner requires continued partnership between the Royal Government of Bhutan, its development partners, key stakeholders, as well as between UN agencies.
Focusing on sustainable development as Bhutan becomes a Lower Middle-Income Country (LMIC) will help ensure a smooth transition and avoid a reversal of results already achieved.
The overall goal of the United Nations’ support to Bhutan from 2019 to 2023 is to support “A Just, harmonious and sustainable Bhutan where no one is left behind”. Based on a theory of change, the UN aims to mobilize and invest an estimated USD 120 million to achieve results in four outcome areas, by 2023.
