The Secretary-General's UN COVID-19 Response and Recovery Trust Fund was a UN mechanism to address the unprecedented socio-economic threats of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly for countries and populations most vulnerable to the pandemic. Based on the principle of global solidarity, the Fund was UN reform in action. Through fast and efficient financing, the Fund mobilized the UN's expertise and its global reach for rapid integrated UN responses, led by the Resident Coordinator, to support countries and safeguard their progress towards the SDGs.
The fund is now completed. The latest narrative report can be found: United Nations Covid-19 Response and Recovery Fund Final Narrative Report (February 2023)
