How does the SDG-F build on the MDG-F experience?
As the largest ever contribution of a single country to the UN Development System for the achievement of MDGs, the MDG-F reached more than 9 million direct participants through 130 joint programmes in 50 countries. Its work was anchored in integrated, holistic, approaches to development problems identified by national partners. In addition, the MDG-F established other thematic, advocacy and knowledge partnerships to advance the MDGs. All this experience has been extensively evaluated and analyzed, and findings from this evaluation process will be feeding the work of the new facility. Moreover, the SDG-F’s Secretariat will share these findings with other development partners so as to inform other development initiatives, especially those rooted in joint and integrated programmes.
