Mobilizing adequate resources – financial and non-financial – is critical for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. To achieve the 2030 Agenda, there is a need for a dramatic increase in financing – from domestic, international, public, private sources – as well as a major push to address global systemic issues and to advance capacity building, technology development and transfer, coherence in domestic policies and knowledge sharing and mutual learning.
At the conclusion of the training course participants are expected to better understand the scope and objectives of the normative frameworks for financing sustainable development. The linkages between the frameworks and the ground breaking 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development will be clarified, as will the institutional mechanisms that are in place to monitor progress in financing and the means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Participants will also gain an understanding of the policy recommendations that emanate from analytical and normative work conducted across a range of entities and processes and how these can feed into policy making at the national and local levels. Participants will be apprised of the opportunities available for countries to identify and access a wide range of investment and financing potentially available for sustainable development.
