Common Minimum Standards for Multi-stakeholder Engagement in the UNDAF
Sustainable Development Goals
These Common Minimum Standards for multi-stakeholder engagement support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda at country level through the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) as the most important instrument for the planning and implementation of United Nations development activities in each country, in support of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Common Minimum Standards build on good field practices shared by UNCTs and will serve as minimumlevel steps UN Country Teams (UNCTs) will take to forge stakeholder engagement in support of the 2030 Agenda through UNDAFs, while recognizing that country contexts are different and that the implementation will differ based on national considerations. UNCTs are encouraged to go beyond the Common Minimum Standards. The standards should be read alongside the upcoming redesigned UNDAF Guidance and the Leaving No One Behind (LNOB) Guide.
