Our Work on the Sustainable Development Goals in Kuwait

How the UN is supporting The Sustainable Development Goals in Kuwait

The Government of the State of Kuwait and the United Nations are committed to working together with local communities, the private sector, academia, the civil society, through south-south cooperation and international partnerships, to achieve the expected results from this Strategic Cooperation Framework (SCF) for the period 2020-2025. The SCF describes the planned cooperation results and strategies supported by the UN system and how they will contribute to national development priorities. These include the pillars established in Kuwait Vision 2035, the Kuwait National Development Plan (KNDP), related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and the country’s human rights commitments and other internationally agreed development goals and treaty obligations to which H. H. the Amir of the State of Kuwait has committed in statements to the General Assembly. The SCF builds upon the successes and lessons of past cooperation efforts by UN system agencies. It harnesses the comparative advantages of the entire UN system to work jointly and more effectively with country partners. It consolidates the work of the UN system in a single coherent framework that provides a platform for common policy work and stronger coordination and delivery of results. The success of the SCF will be measured by Kuwait’s equitable progress toward selected international KPIs, across targeted pillars.
