The UN Sri Lanka SDG Multi-Partner Trust Fund will support an ambitious agenda for working together to unlock progress towards the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs in Sri Lanka. While as part of reform efforts the UNCT is undertaking a common country analysis and a review of progress with the implementation of the UNSDF 2018-2022, in the analysis of the national action plan the UNCT has determined that opportunities are available to respond to current national priorities by more strategically addressing the core issues in the accelerator analysis. The three interventions proposed for the Fund are designed to provide a more integrated and cohesive approach to addressing the core inequalities and vulnerabilities in Sri Lanka, providing both continuity with past successes and seizing new opportunities provided in the plan of the new government.

  1. Bridging the peace and development gap: by continuously adapting initiatives to current circumstances and new needs and opportunities as the political context evolves, including implementation of the JPP – accelerator 3 and UNSDF Outcome 2
  2. Building resilience to address inequalities by tackling climate change and disaster risk reduction:  a comprehensive and locally adapted approach will ensure sustainable development is informed by climate proofing solutions and reducing disaster risks, while  improving access to social protection, livelihoods (economic, business and SME resilience) ,and services at local level. A special focus will be given also to strengthening immediate emergency response capacities to the increasing likelihood of various disasters, including health pandemics, to ensure support is available to the most vulnerable segments of the population through local service providers – accelerators 1,4 and 5 and UNSDF Outcomes 3 and 4
  3. Strengthening capacities for national planning and financing strategies, statistical and data development and innovations in the use of technology to improve government functions: in addition to enhancing work on data and statistics there is an opportunity to support the new government in SDG based planning at national and provincial levels, to identify options in an integrated national financing framework to realise needed investments, and to promote innovations in development administration through technology applications - accelerators 1 and 2 and UNSDF Outcomes 1 and 2

The overarching Theory of Change of the UNSLSDG Fund is that IF the UNSLSDG complements and strengthens coordination and cooperation, among all stakeholders, in critical thematic areas that are common and run parallel to the UN Sustainable Development Framework 2018 -2022 (UNSDF); THEN it will enable UNCT to implement a cohesive and focused programme, in close partnership with relevant stakeholders to realise SDG based targets; THUS enabling to reduce multiple inequalities and achieve sustainable results leading to leaving no one behind in an upper middle-income context.
