Overview of the India-UN Development Partnership Fund (UNOSSC, 2021)

Show all

The India-UN Development Partnership Fund (India-UN Fund) was established in 2017 as a practical manifestation of the spirit of solidarity that has historically guided the Government and people of India. It is centred on forming partnerships with other developing countries to advance humancentric sustainable development across the world.

The India-UN Fund is a notable example of South-South cooperation with the multilateral system. Sponsored by the Government of India and implemented through the United Nations system, with the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) as the coordinating partner, the Fund supports projects that advance all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Priority is accorded to partnering with small island developing States, least developed countries, landlocked developing countries and countries affected by disaster.

This publication was produced by the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC) in consultation with the Board of Directors of the India-UN Development Partnership Fund and the Permanent Mission of India to the United Nations, with contributions from United Nations agencies and partners participating in the implementation of India-UN Development Partnership Fund project activities.

As Fund Manager and Secretariat of the India-UN Development Partnership Fund, UNOSSC is pleased to present this overview of the Fund. Heartfelt thanks and appreciation are expressed to all partners that continue to support, advance and collaborate in making this portfolio a great success.
