The strategic focus of the Fund revolves around the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation 2023-2027, targeting support to development initiatives from three strategic priority areas of UN work in Montenegro:

  • inclusive economic development and environmental sustainability;
  • human capital development, reducing vulnerability, social inclusion; and
  • social cohesion, people-centred governance, rule of law and human rights.

Montenegro SDG Acceleration Fund aims to support acceleration of the EU accession process through the 2030 Agenda framework. UN Montenegro conducted an analysis of synergies and interlinkages between the EU accession process and the 2030 Agenda. The findings show that EU accession process addresses 2/3rds of the 2030 Agenda (105 out of 169 SDG targets).

Montenegro SDG Acceleration Fund will seek to propel synergetic moments between these two transformational agendas so the public administration, as the primary duty bearer, yields on efficiency gains when tackling these two processes in synergy.

Beyond the policy cohesion element and the support towards Cooperation Framework implementation, the Fund will produce benefits of triggering more joint UN action as one of the major calls of the UN Reform.
