Welcome to the Montenegro SDG Acceleration Fund homepage

Montenegro SDG Acceleration Fund

Montenegro SDG Acceleration Fund (MAF) is a pooled fund mechanism that aims to accelerate implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and imminent achievement of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Montenegro, as well as to support the country’s EU accession process.

The fund provides catalytic support to priority areas in line with the National Strategy for Sustainable Development, Programme of Accession of Montenegro to the European Union and the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework 2023-2027. Additional benefits that the Fund yields are related to achieving synergies of participating UN Organisations and thus support in-country implementation of the UN Reform.

With only seven years left to achieve SDGs, and even less for fulfilling EU accession criteria, Montenegro needs support to be successful. This is the main rationale for establishing the Montenegro SDG Acceleration Fund.


 

A common vision of accelerated achievement of Agenda 2030

UN Resident Coordinator Peter Lundberg pointed out that the Fund has been designed as a powerful catalyst for accelerating SDGs implemetation in the country.

"The Montenegro SDG Acceleration Fund is a common vision of accelerated achievement of Agenda 2030. Considering the enormous development potential, the Fund can be an important tool for country’s development and achievement of national priorities, primarely country's accession to the European Union," said Lundberg, adding that the Fund is the result of a true development partnership.
