In Brief: United Nations Sustainable Development Cooperation

The new UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (Cooperation Framework) sits at the centre of the reforms. It is the most important planning and implementation instrument for UN development activities within countries, translating the vision of Member States into UN actions and impacts on the ground. It heightens the ambition of the UN development system, and makes it more agile and equipped to achieve the transformative results that countries now demand.

This brief provides a snapshot of the Cooperation Framework, summarizing the importance and key changes of the new Framework.
