The SCF is based on a common understanding of the strengths of the UN system and its comparative advantage in adding value to Government’s objectives and priorities as reflected, in the New Growth Path (NGP), Government’s National Development Plan (NDP): Vision 2030, the Medium Term Strategic Framework (MTSF) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

It is distributed to Government, high-level UN officials, the Diplomatic Corps, Civil society organisations, Private sector, Academics, Foundations and the media.
