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.
