SDG Integration means finding holistic, sustainable solutions to complex development problems, together.
We help countries connect the dots on these complex issues.
The Sustainable Development Goals are designed to be integrated. Sustainable development recognizes that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, combating inequality within and among countries, preserving the planet, creating sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth and fostering social inclusion are linked to each other and are interdependent - this is agreed by Member States. If these challenges are interlinked and interdependent, then the way we work and the solutions we develop must be integrated.
The Secretary General has drawn attention to the growing number of complex issues that cannot be dealt with in isolation, from forced migration, civil wars and climate change, to the future of work and persistent inequalities. UNDP has a unique mix of resources and experience in supporting the policies and capacities of countries to tackle these issues through integrated approaches, from addressing multi-dimensional poverty, helping build accountable and effective institutions, and working in strong partnership with governments.
