Ammon News - The United Nations, in coordination with its Jordan country office, on Monday launched a series of consultations with its partners and stakeholders in the Kingdom on the 2023-2027 United Nations Sustainable Development Framework (UNSFD).

A statement issued by the UN Office of the Coordinator said the framework is the most important tool for the planning and delivery of UN development activities at the country level and supporting the development priorities of a country to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Partnership Agreement between Jordan and UN organizations.

The consultations include a comprehensive dialogue to exchange views on national priorities for Jordan's sustainable development agenda and to identify national priorities for the new cooperation agreement for the next five years.

UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Jordan Anders Pedersen said: "Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic since 2020, the United Nations in Jordan is committed to supporting the Jordanian government to advance and accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, in line with the Jordan's 2025 vision".

He pointed out that it is important to involve all stakeholders and various groups in the society in the consultations and receive actionable inputs and ideas from the participants to design the new joint framework.

The statement indicated that the consultations will include UN and Jordanian experts, as well as representatives from the private sector, international and national NGOs, civil society, women's groups, youth groups, refugees, bilateral partners - donors, the media, think tanks and academia.

The UNSDF is based on national priorities and the UN Common Country Analysis, and identifies the UN system’s contribution to supporting partners at the national level to realize the Sustainable Development Goals with a commitment to leaving no one behind.
