In 2019, the UN Funding Compact was decided on by UN Member States as a means to provide financial support for the alignment of the UN development system with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Moving towards a “whole of UN” approach, the proposed Compact contains a set of commitments with indicators for Member States and UNSDG entities. Furthermore, the Compact encourages countries to commit more to core UN resources as opposed to ear-marked funding for more effective implementation of the SDGs.
As the UNGA opens its Second Committee on finance and economic matters, hear from delegates and capitals on their progress in meeting those commitments so far. Are Member States complying with the Funding Compact? How important is the Funding Compact for Member States? And how are the effectiveness principles for development co-operation (country ownership, focus on results, inclusive partnerships, transparency and accountability) reflected in the Funding Compact?
