The “Moldova 2030- SDGs Partnership Fund” will serve as an instrument driving for UN joint resource mobilization enabling UNCT to seek innovative financing solutions supporting the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. The fund will leverage the UN Agencies’ collaborative advantages and will play a key role in establishing new partnerships.

The Moldova SDGs Partnership Fund (SDGPF) complements other resources available to the country and is established to support the activities agreed by the Government and the UN as outlined in the 2018-2022 RM- UN Partnership Framework for Sustainable Development and the UN Joint Annual Workplans contributing to the achievement of the SDGs. The SDGPF will be articulated around the five thematic pillars of the RM- UN PFSD and addresses the priority areas of the National Development Strategy- Moldova 2030. 

The SDGPF will be the mechanism contributing to the achievement of the RM- UN PFSD outcomes ensuring the continuous application of the Delivering as One approach based on the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) of the United Nations Sustainable Development Group (UNSDG). It will facilitate the implementation of the One Programme component by consolidating and strengthening the coherence of the programme of cooperation between the Government and United Nations system agencies.

In April 2020 the Fund’s Programmatic interventions’ scope has been supplemented with one more thematic area – Outcome 5: COVID-19 Management and Response.

Assitance Strategy

The SDGPF Moldova represents a key instrument for the United Nations Moldova to enable change to happen in line with its Vision 2030 and formulate programming priorities. The Theory of Change reflected in the fund’s ToR showcases the long-term changes aimed to be achieved through the various programmatic interventions/ outcomes.  

The Partnership Framework for Sustainable Development 2018–2022 further accelerates the implementation of the Delivering as One (DaO) and is framed along four thematic pillars: 1) Governance, human rights and gender equality; 2) Sustainable, inclusive and equitable economic growth; 3) Environmental sustainability and resilience; 4) Inclusive and equitable social development.


The governance arrangements of the SDGPF consist of the SDGPF Steering Committee and the Programme Steering Committee/ Technical Board.
