On 18 May 2018, leaders from the United Nations and World Bank signed a Strategic Partnership Framework (SPF), which consolidates their joint commitment to cooperate in helping countries implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The SPF includes four key areas of cooperation: finance and implementation support to help countries reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); decisive global action on climate change; joint work in post-crisis and humanitarian settings; and harnessing data to improve development outcomes. Amongst other initiatives, the SPF will also focus on:

  • Improving national statistical systems and enhancing countries’ digital data capacities to improve implementation and maximize positive development impacts
