A key element of the SDG Fund is the matching funds system, which requires that every financial contribution made by the SDG Fund is matched at least one to one by the joint programme partners. These are national and subnational governments, UN agencies, the private sector and civil society.

This ensures greater national ownership and improves sustainability, since many of these initiatives are scaled up or inform new national policies. Therefore, the SDG Fund is leveraging in-country resources, with 25% of the resources coming from non DAC OECD countries.

National and international partners, including the private sector, provide approximately 58% of the resources through matching funds. Each joint programme contributes to the achievement of several SDGs.

By mobilizing matching funds, every dollar invested in the SDG Fund has generated 2.36 dollars in programme budget.
