UNDP has been supporting the government in mainstreaming SDGs in the National Development Strategy 2016 – 2035 (NDS). Solomon Islands Development Finance Assessment (DFA) was conducted with technical guidance provided by UNDP through the Asia Pacific Development Effectiveness Facility (AP-DEF). The result of the DFA informed the Government to develop the Solomon Islands Integrated Financing Framework (SIIFF), which links the aspirations of the National Development Strategy to the government policies and operations that will mobilize the necessary financing.
Private sector is recognized as a key partner to the achievement of the SDGs. It plays an important role as an engine of economic growth and job creation in the country. Our engagement with private sector in Solomon Islands focuses on empowerment of unemployed youth through supporting youth entrepreneurship. The public private partnerships also work for effective waste management in Honiara, the capital city of the country.
