The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) works with the people and Government of Kazakhstan, along with other development partners, to ensure more prosperous and more secure lives for every woman and man, girl and boy, particularly the most vulnerable.

The United Nations Country Team works on a broad range of issues, including economic and social development and health, environmental protection and disaster relief, the promotion of good governance and human rights, gender equality and the advancement of women.

In our work in Kazakhstan, we ensure that the development and implementation of all United Nations planning and programming documents align fully with national development needs and priorities.


The Sustainable Development Goals in Kazakhstan

The UN system in Kazakhstan stands firmly in support of the country’s aspiration to join the ranks of the 30 most developed countries of the world by achieving the OECD standards. We remain convinced that the 2030 Global Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 SDGs are an excellent instrument that can help Kazakhstan to effectively achieve its development aspirations as articulated in Strategy 2050 and the subsequent reform agenda.
