Financing for Sustainable Development Report 2020

Mobilizing financing is critical to supporting emerging economies and developing countries, now more so than ever as the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis presents new challenges. This United Nations (UN) report points the way.

The UN System’s 2020 Financing for Sustainable Development Report highlights the importance and role of integrated national financing frameworks (INFFs) in overcoming the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis. It outlines measures to address the impact of the unfolding global recession and financial turmoil, especially in the world’s poorest countries. Its recommendations are based on joint research and analysis from the UN System, the International Monetary Fund, World Bank Group, and more than 60 UN agencies and international institutions.
