Title:Unlocking development financing: Good practices from early adopters

In order to achieve the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development radical and innovative approaches to financing are required. Between USD $3.3-4.5 trillion per year need to be mobilised.

The Secretary-General’s June 2017 report about repositioning the United Nations Development System (UNDS) to deliver on the 2030 Agendaemphasises the financing needs for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and calls for a comprehensive overhaul of the UNDS approach to financing. While governments attract various investors and mobilise different types of finance a new generation of United Nations Country Teams (UNCTs) need to become better equipped to support governments in overcoming critical challenges to financing the SDGs.
