The Inter-Agency Task Force Report will assess progress in the seven action areas of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, such as (i) domestic public resources; (ii) domestic and international private business and finance; (iii) international development cooperation; (iv) international trade as an engine for development; (v) debt sustainability; (vi) addressing systemic issues; and (vii) science, technology, innovation and capacity building. The 2016 report lays out the commitments contained in the Addis Agenda in a systematic manner, and presents options for monitoring these commitments. The report primarily targets Member States, particularly policymakers from ministries of finance, trade, foreign affairs and development cooperation, as well as central banks, local authorities, regulators and parliaments.

Introduction

In July 2015, world leaders came together in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to adopt the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (the Addis Agenda) at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development (FfD). The Addis Agenda created a holistic and coherent framework for financing sustainable development. More than just a framework, the Addis Agenda embodies several hundred concrete actions that Member States of the United Nations pledged to undertake individually and collectively. As subsequently emphasized in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by the General Assembly in September 2015, full implementation of the Addis Agenda is critical for the realization of the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and targets.
