The Saudi Fund for Development
The Saudi Fund for Development (SFD), Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is working to rehabilitate infrastructure in areas affected by natural and man-made disasters to improve people’s access to socioeconomic services and civic amenities. SFD’s partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is crucial to improving sustainable development in Pakistan.
SFD is supporting UNDP and the Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) in rehabilitating damaged community infrastructure schemes, including link roads, street pavements, irrigation and drainage channels, small bridges and culverts in Swat district. It has allocated US$ 11.667 million for this purpose.
UNDP’s work is made possible by the personal, financial and professional commitment of organizations like SFD. We actively engage in an array of development partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders, both national and international, working together in all phases of the development cycle, from programme design, implementation, review and revision, to lessons learned and best practices. Partners like SFD play a crucial role in promoting and financing strategies that will help Pakistan achieve its national development goals.
