Can other donors joint the SDG-F?

Yes, Spain and UNDP, in the SDG-F framework document agreed to open the SDG-F to new donors, from both the public and private sectors that are interested in supporting multidimensional UN joint programmes to achieve sustainable development.

Does SDG-F have a deadline for its operations?

The SDG-F was conceived as a permanent facility (and therefore without a scheduled operational closure) to channel strategic joint efforts of UN Agencies, the Government of Spain and other development partners to advance sustainable development. The new facility is born at precisely the same time that the post-2015 development agenda is under discussion and it intends to be a means of implementation of this new framework for international aid.   

How is the SDG-F managed?

Steering Committee, represented at the highest level by UNDP and the Government of Spain, meets at least once per year and provides overall guidance and strategic direction. UNDP’s Multi Partner Trust Fund Office ( is entrusted with the administration of the Fund as Administrative Agent.
