Mission and objectives

The Joint Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Fund is an innovative instrument to incentivize the transformative policy shifts and stimulate the strategic investments required to get the world back on track to meet the SDGs. The UN Secretary-General sees the Joint SDG Fund as a key part of the reform of the UN’s development work by providing the “muscle” for a new generation of Resident Coordinators (RCs) and UN Country Teams (UNCTs) to really accelerate SDG implementation. The Fund Secretariat is hosted by the UN Development Coordination Office (DCO) with the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF-O) serving as the Administrative Agent.


Under the catalytic investment programmes, the Joint SDG Fund supports the structuring and launching of innovative blended financing solutions to demonstrate the potential of financial markets to catalyse additional financing for the SDGs. To date, the Joint SDG Fund is supporting the design and structuring of 21 blended finance solutions with a total budget of $114 million. The SDG Bond is one of the key financial instruments that the Fund is supporting with UNCTs.
