As one of our largest government contributors, Sweden is a vital partner in UNDP’s mission to end extreme poverty, reduce inequality and achieve the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  UNDP’s work and the priorities of the Swedish Government converge in many areas, especially in our shared ambition to help countries reach the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through strengthening democratic governance and the rule of law; taking action on climate change; and addressing the root causes of conflict in order to build sustainable peace. 

Sweden has pledged $3.3m towards UNDP’s new regional initiative on preventing and responding to the growth of violent extremism in Africa. By targeting governance structures, providing livelihood opportunities for young people in high risk areas and involving religious leaders as change agents, this project aims to contribute to lasting peace and stability. In addition, it has substantially increased its support to the Green Climate Fund and the Global Environmental Facility. Sweden is now the largest per capita funder of the Green Climate Fund and co-chairs it in 2018 with Nicaragua.
