Viet Nam joined the United Nations on 20 September 1977. The UN’s support to Viet Nam began with focus on war reconstruction and humanitarian assistance. Recognizing the rapid changes in the economic and development context of Viet Nam, the UN has been expanded towards strengthening institutions, policies, social protection, health, education, agriculture, and more. With the aim to build sustainable and inclusive state, the UN in Viet Nam is working together with Viet Nam in accelerating SDG achievement and other national development priorities in four strategic areas: Investing in People; Ensuring climate resilience and environmental sustainability; Fostering prosperity and partnership; and Promoting justice, peace and inclusive governance.
