About the product

The Fiscal Panorama of Latin America and the Caribbean 2017 analyses the scope for mobilizing resources to fund sustainable development within the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It argues for the importance of moving towards progressive tax systems in which direct taxes play an important role, and of continuing the struggle against tax evasion, which significantly undermines revenues. Lastly, it reviews progress with environmental taxation, identifying lessons that may be of use in future tax reforms, and examines territorial disparities and their implications for the design and configuration of fiscal policy in the region’s countries.
