There are dozens of multilateral organizations, each with its own size and scope, and each created to tackle some specific set of international issues. Multilateral organizations are important elements of global development and humanitarian response. Multilateral organizations play an important role in the social and economic programs of developing and transitioning countries.

Since 2015, the UN programming and investments have been driven by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a 15-year plan divided into 17 different goals that provide a shared blueprint on how to tackle development challenges. The SDGs currently guide international development investments and track progress and effectiveness through a intersectional set of indicator.
