The United Nations Multi-Country Office for Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei Darussalam is located in Putrajaya, Malaysia and covers three independent countries.

The mandate of the United Nations is to support the three countries in its vision of achieving the 2030 Agenda, which charts a development path that balances economic growth with social inclusion and environmental sustainability, based on solid institutional foundations, conditions for peaceful societies and the realization of human rights. To this end, 169 targets further specify the ambitious 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030 and a comprehensive indicator framework has been developed to measure progress.

Globally, 131 UN Country Teams implement the UNSDG strategic priorities in 162 countries and territories, helping them implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The UNCT in Malaysia brings a wide range of expertise, international standards and best practices to address complex developmental challenges. We work closely with government, civil society, private sector, academia and people from all walks of life – prioritising last mile development issues and driving catalytic action through strategic efforts and partnership

In Malaysia, the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) comprises 21 agencies, led by the UN Resident Coordinator (RC), to deliver greater impact together on the 2030 Agenda and SDGs in line with national priorities, plans and needs. This is a good representation of the largest multilateral organisation in the world.
