The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development underlines the important role and comparative advantage of an adequately resourced, relevant, coherent, efficient and effective UN system in supporting SDG achievement. This is applicable to the UN system at all levels – global, regional and national. At the regional level, over 20 UN entities are active with regional or sub-regional mandates in Europe and Central Asia. The Regional Coordination Mechanism (RCM) and the Regional UN Development Group for Europe and Central Asia serve as platforms for close cooperation in thematic areas requiring diverse technical expertise and application of best available approaches. The positioning document captures the key messages and actions agreed by the Heads of the regional UN entities in response to the 2030 Agenda.
