UNDESA releases new report on funding the SDGS

“Financing for Development: Progress and Prospects,” the 2018 comprehensive annual progress report on how to finance the Sustainable Development Goals was recently launched. The report is written by the Inter-agency Task Force on Financing for Development and issued under the auspices of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, by mandate from the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.
The 2018 report provides policy options which, if implemented, would put the world on a sustained and sustainable growth and development path. It also examines the financing challenges to the SDGs under in-depth review in 2018 to help assess progress in the means of implementation for goals on water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, sustainable production and consumption, and terrestrial ecosystems.
