The United Nations (UN) has renewed its commitment to working with Bangladesh towards a prosperous, climate-resilient future for all Bangladeshis.

"We renew our commitment to working with Bangladesh towards a prosperous, climate-resilient future for all Bangladeshis, with gender equality, human rights and Leave No One Behind principles integrated across all our efforts," said UN Resident Coordinator in Bangladesh Gwyn Lewis held a Joint Steering Committee (JSC) meeting on Sunday, according to a release.

The Government of Bangladesh and the United Nations Country Team held the meeting recently to launch the 2023 UN Country Results Report and discuss 2024 priorities for implementing the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (Cooperation Framework).
 
UN Resident Coordinator said their focus in 2024 is on consolidating joint efforts to deliver programmes at scale and strengthen multi-stakeholder partnerships that can help the government to unlock vital financing for the SDGs, including for climate action.

The United Nations (UN) has commended the government of Bangladesh for its leadership role in global UN initiatives such as early warning for all, transforming education and the Food Systems Summit, which all progressed in 2023.

"The UNs priorities are fully aligned with the governments vision, including the essential work needed to prepare for LDC graduation and adapt to climate change," said UN Resident Coordinator in Bangladesh Gwyn Lewis at the a Joint Steering Committee (JSC) meeting on Sunday, a release said.

At the meeting, Economic Relations Division (ERD) Secretary Md Shahriar Kader Siddiky expressed gratitude to the United Nations for providing the comprehensive review of the accomplishments in 2023 and engaging in a productive dialogue regarding development priorities for the upcoming year.

"As Bangladesh progresses towards LDC graduation and lays the groundwork for the 9th Five-year Plan, we anticipate sustaining our collaborative efforts with the UN, fostering a deepened partnership that includes active involvement in the Summit of the Future," he added.

The 2023 Results Report shows how the United Nations delivered $219 million in development programming under the Cooperation Framework in 2023.
