Resource Mobilization and Sub-National Fiscal Autonomy: A Development Finance Perspective

The SDGs balance the economic, social, and ecological dimensions of sustainable development, in addition to aligning the twin goals of fighting poverty and achieving sustainable development. Among other things, the SDGs are aimed at tackling issues related to health, education, gender equality, environmental degradation, and poverty reduction. Download paper here.
