How the UN is supporting The Sustainable Development Goals in Pakistan

The UN in Pakistan has been supporting Pakistan in various aspects of its endeavor to realize the SDGs. Policy and technical supports feature prominently in UN’s contribution to the achievement of SDGs in Pakistan. In 2018, the Government of Pakistan and the UN in Pakistan signed the UN Sustainable Development Framework (UNSDF), also known as the Pakistan One United Nations Programme III (OP III) 2018-2022. This Framework is a medium-term strategic planning document with planned results focusing on ten key outcomes, which are identified through extensive consultation with multiple stakeholders and in alignment with Pakistan’s development priorities. Under the guidance of the OP III 2018-2022, UN agencies in Pakistan have been working in close cooperation with the government in various thematic areas, thus contributing to the outputs specified in the document and eventually the pursuit of SDGs in Pakistan.
