EU-UN co-operation: EU announces support to the UN reform for more efficiency in partner countries


International Partnerships Commissioner Jutta Urpilainen said: “The EU is a steadfast supporter of the UN Development reform. In this time of multiple global challenges, the most effective way to deliver results on the ground for the LDCs and our other partners is multilateral cooperation and coordination. We champion renewed and more effective multilateralism.”

The EU’s support will benefit from the co-operation and dialogue between the EU and UN when building programmes with and in partner countries, in the framework of the EU’s Global Gateway strategy, and in line with the Sustainable Development Goals. Better coordination and dialogue between the EU and the UN also enables to show to third country partners the strength of a co-ordinated and democratic offer.

The present contribution confirms the EU’s longstanding support to the UN reform process, expressed both politically and financially through contributions to the UN Residents Coordinator System and the UN Joint SDG Fund with a total of €74 million since 2019.
