“The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for major societal transformations that will require significant fiscal outlays as well as private investments. The fiscal outlays cover public investments, the public provision of social services, and social protection for vulnerable populations.” SDG Costing & Finance For LIDCS (SDSN 2019).
This session will showcase organizations that provide multilateral financing of the SDGs on the continents of both Africa and Asia. These organizations provide solutions to development challenges and support in the acceleration of the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals through financing and deployment of targeted interventions. The session will also be an opportunity to mobilize efforts through cross-cutting strategies and strong partnerships.
