Financing for Development: Progress and Prospects 2018
Friday, 13 July 2018
1:15 PM - 2:30 PM
Trusteeship Council Chamber, UNHQ
Interagency Task Force on Financing for Development (IATF)
The 2018 Financing for Sustainable Development Report of the Inter-agency Task Force includes an exploration of financing opportunities and challenges for the five SDGs under in-depth review at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development: (i) water and sanitation; (ii) affordable and clean energy; (iii) sustainable cities and communities; (iv) sustainable production and consumption patterns; and (v) terrestrial ecosystems. It views these issues through the cross-cutting lenses of gender equality; the commitment to leave no one behind; and the role of new technologies in achieving the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.
The side event will explore implementation of the highlighted SDGs, in the context of a global environment that has seen increased growth and investment but is also marked by significant and growing risks.
