The United Nations and Nigeria have finalize agreement to jointly implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Partnership Framework (UNSDPF) between 2018 and 2022.
In the partnership tagged, ‘Delivering as One’, Nigeria is expected to achieve its development goals through the agreement and its aspirations realised.
This partnership would strongly support the achievement of Nigeria developmental commitments to its citizens and the international community.
The UNSDPF common country programme Document produced by the United Nations System in Nigeria, stipulated the application of the new Standard Operating Procedure for UN coherence.
The emphasis of the partnerships is to focus on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as the foundation, and its participatory formulation approach with the Nigerian Government and key stakeholders through an elaborate consultative process that upholds the principles of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness.
“This collaborative effort will contribute essentially to the achievement of the development goals and aspirations of Nigeria and strongly support the achievement of its developmental commitments to its people and the international community. We will act together in cognizance of this opportunity and responsibility.”
