Partnership Fund for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG Fund)

About the SDG Fund

The World Bank Group Partnership Fund for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG Fund) was established to promote best practices and knowledge sharing for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Fund responds to the growing demand for strategic initiatives that drive the achievement of SDG17 on the means of implementation. 

The SDG Fund has three core objectives:

1. Build and strengthen capacity and awareness, among actors and institutions, for implementing the SDGs;

2. Stimulate the development of analytical tools for solving SDG challenges; and,

3. Promote multi-stakeholder partnerships, both within the WBG and with other external stakeholders.



The SDG Fund is developing unique tools, knowledge products, and partnerships that are imperative to maintain momentum on track to achieve the global goals by 2030.

The SDG Fund finances initiatives led by World Bank Group teams, in cooperation with over 100 partners, including UN agencies, public- and private-sector entities, academia, and other development actors. Activities cover a broad range of sectors and are designed to help governments and other institutions around the world reach the global goals.
