Regional level

Regional Teams

At the regional level, the UN Sustainable Development Group (UNSDG)—agencies, funds and programmes working on development—work to support countries and territories to achieve the 2030 Agenda, addressing key challenges that transcend country borders such as health and environment.

The UN Development Coordination Office (DCO) serves as the secretariat for the UNSDG at the regional and global levels. At the regional level, five UN DCO Regional Directors and their teams in Panama, Addis Ababa, Amman, Istanbul and Bangkok provide the UN Resident Coordinators in country with regional-specific support, with a secretariat role for the regional UN Sustainable Development Group.
