Welcome to the SDF’s e-newsletter for the second quarter of 2022.
SDF, as an umbrella regional financial institution for SAARC projects and programs, is fully committed to promote “Regional Integration and Economic Cooperation among the SAARC Member States” through project funding and collaboration”. SDF Secretariat, based in Thimphu Bhutan, was established in April 2010.
To realize our mission, we at SAARC Development Fund continue to undertake a number of initiatives for the strategic growth of the region, such as funding regional projects under our Social, Economic and Infrastructure Windows, and forging relationships with partners for taking up joint initiatives and co-funding of projects. The past decade has offered us new projects, partnerships and numerous interventions to enable SDF to become a more dynamic and robust umbrella-funding institution, amply capable of delivering the benefits of regional engagement to the millions in the region through project-based collaboration.
This newsletter highlights SDF’s continued commitment towards promoting the welfare of the people of SAARC Region, improving their quality of life, accelerating economic growth and social progress, and alleviating poverty through financing and implementation of development projects in all the SAARC Member States.
