About the product

The sustainable development financing (SDF) is critical for adopting a framework and implementation of sustainable development goals that would be successor to MDGs framework. The publication aims to analyse the scope, trends and potential of all sources of financing at the national levels in the Asia-Pacific region. In particular, financing of sustainable development is required to highlight a number of areas, including: the scope for domestic resource mobilization through tax and capital markets; institutional investments, and leveraging those through public-private partnerships; the need for financial inclusion for all; climate finance requirements; external resources, specifically official development assistance and private flows; and efforts to forge new and better partnerships for financing sustainable development. The publication shows the differences across countries in the region, and explores their potential impact for implementing the sustainable development goals both at the regional and national levels. The publication aims to provide policy makers in the region an improved understanding and challenges and their impact on inclusive and sustainable development, with a special focus on the countries with special needs.
