Belarus SDG - Key Documents


To support the acceleration of the SDGs in Belarus, stakeholders of the SDG Joint Programme focus on implementing nationalized and localized initiatives that leverage comparative advantages between partners, strengthen national capacities, raise public awareness around the Global Goals, and support local SDG acceleration, monitoring, and evaluation.

Fund scope and strategic approach

The Republic of Belarus has actively incorporated the SDGs into policy planning processes at national and regional levels, but not all aspects have been fully implemented because of limited financing. Gaps remain in regional planning, monitoring, and SDG implementation, which is problematic for stakeholders who work to accelerate 2030 Agenda achievement.

To address these gaps, stakeholders of the Joint Programme focus on integrating the SDGs into national policies and programmes, bringing the Global Goals into the daily lives of people across the country. Specific outcomes are to strengthen the capacity of national partners in SDG implementation, incorporate SDGs in systems forecasting and planning, and improve approaches for monitoring and assessing sustainable development goal progress.

Initiatives are implemented under four core categories:

  • Component 1: Building national and regional capacity of decision-makers on SDG issues with a special focus on engaging young people, civil society organization representatives, and members of the business community. Part of this component involves developing a methodological framework for SDG decision-making and launching public relations and communication campaigns to promote SDG principles.
  • Component 2: Provision of expert assistance to localize and integrate SDGs into national and regional plans. This will be supported by designing, implementing, and scaling-up pilot SDG projects that showcase practical applications of “SDG accelerators.”
  • Component 3: Supports SDG data collection, analysis, monitoring and evaluation.
  • Component 4: Ensuring effective Joint Programme management and stakeholder coordination across all participating partners.

By leveraging comparative advantages, drawing on expert capacities, and boosting engagement in target communities, stakeholders will optimize SDG promotion and institutional mainstreaming. Partnerships developed and strengthened also serve to enhance cooperation and local and national levels.
