More about the SDG Fund

How is SDG-F funded?

The initial resources of the SDG-F (approximately USD 60 million) come primarily from the residual funds of the MDG Achievement Fund, which closed in 2013. The Government of Spain has also contributed additional financing. 

Why is it called Sustainable Development Goals, even if SDGs are yet to be approved?

Even if, at the establishment of the SDG-F, the debate over the new development agenda is still underway and its outcome unclear, the Government of Spain, with this Fund, wants to affirm its political will to support the creation of a new development framework with a heavy focus on poverty reduction and sustainable development. As proof of this commitment, the SDG-F will contribute to a consistent and effective post-2015 development agenda, using as a basis the vast experience of the MDG-F with its results and lessons learned.
