Signing of the One Strategic Framework for Sustainable Development Cooperation between the United Nations and the Government of Viet Nam for the period 2022-2026
(MPI) - On August 11, 2022, Minister Nguyen Chi Dung, as assigned by the Prime Minister of the Government of S.R of Viet Nam, and the United Nations (UN) Resident Coordinator in Viet Nam Pauline Tamesis signed the new One Strategic Framework for Sustainable Development Cooperation (CF) between the Government of S.R Viet Nam and all UN resident and non-resident agencies in Viet Nam for the period 2022-2026.

The CF guides and steers the Government of Viet Nam and the UN in Vietnam’s collaboration on accelerating progress to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It highlights the joint commitment to deliver sustainable development for all.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Minister Nguyen Chi Dung emphasised the CF will be implemented at a time when Viet Nam has been synchronously implementing solutions to strengthen its post-pandemic economic recovery, respond to climate change and transition to a green, circular economy.

The Government has also been making efforts to improve institutions and policies in order to mobilise resources from all economic sectors to develop the country. Together with other development partners, the UN plays an important role in supporting Viet Nam in its development, integration and strong participation in the global development through policy advice to the Government, sharing Viet Nam’s experience with developing countries and introducing international experience to ensure a sustainable, green growth economy that balances economic and social development.

The UN Resident Coordinator in Viet Nam Pauline Tamesis affirmed that for the UN, the pandemic strengthened their conviction of the primacy of “leaving no one behind”. The principle of leaving no one behind runs through the CF as the fundamental commitment of the UN in Viet Nam. The CF also reflects a strong commitment to the principles of human rights, gender equality and women’s empowerment, and the obligations to international standards and treaties.

The CF is the primary strategic document to guide and steer Vietnam and the UN’ collaboration; is key in guiding to bring sustainable development for all in Vietnam. Pauline thanked the MPI and Minister Dung for leading the Government’s close engagement with the UN.

(iii) Shared prosperity through economic transformation, with a focus on sustainable, inclusive and gender-responsive economic transformation based on innovation, entrepreneurship, enhanced productivity, competitiveness and decent work.
