Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) and The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) participated in the High-Level Strategic Dialogue (HLSD) hosted by the Permanent Mission of the State of Qatar to the UN. 

The HLSD included the participation of delegation from QFFD and UNDP, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, alongside other Qatari stakeholders, and it set the stage for advancing the longstanding partnership through focusing on key areas such as of capacity building and global advocacy and the flagship initiative “Accelerator Labs”, co-founded by QFFD. The “Accelerator Labs”, which is composed of 91 hubs set up 115 countries, is the world’s largest and fastest learning network on advancing local innovations to yield sustainable development.

With only 15% of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on track to be realized by 2030, this dialouge marks a renewed shared commitment to accelerating the SDGs through global partnerships, solidarity and adherence to multilateralism. 

During the opening remarks of the Dialogue, H.E. Mr. Khalifa Al Kuwari, Director General of QFFD, stated: “At QFFD, we eagerly look forward to strengthening our partnership with UNDP, exploring additional domains for collaboration, joining efforts, and using synergies. Bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise enriches our collective efforts and shared vision of creating a more sustainable and equitable world for all.”

In order to strengthen the resilience of nations, communities, and individuals in need, QFFD will continue forging strategic partnerships and support development and humanitarian interventions that lead to a better future, give hope, and advance peace and justice globally.
