What is MSDF?

The United Nations Multi country Sustainable Development Framework (UN MSDF) is the business plan for the UN agencies, funds and programmes in the English and Dutch speaking Caribbean for the period January 2017  to December  2021. 

The UN MSDF supports the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the SAMOA Pathway and  other international development aspirations, and the national development plans of the individual countries in the  English and Dutch speaking Caribbean. It is also intended to support the promotion of all the international human rights that have been ratified in the English and Dutch speaking Caribbean. 

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests
