2023 Report of the UNSDG Chair on the Development Coordination Office
Midway through the path to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), rising inequalities, surging conflicts, lingering socio-economic impacts of the COVID pandemic, spillovers of the war in Ukraine, and the widespread effects of the climate emergency constitute tremendous challenges for sustainable development. Strong, integrated and expert UN leadership is now more essential than ever. The investments agreed by Member States to strengthen the leadership, impartiality, accountability and effectiveness of the UN Resident Coordinator System are yielding clear returns in enhancing the UN development system (UNDS) support to national governments to advance the SDGs. This report details the results of development coordination in 2022, which helped foster more coherent support for tailored SDG solutions aligned to countries’ priorities.
