The Financing for Sustainable Development Report 2019 will assess the global economic context for development financing, highlighting growing global risks and challenges, and the need for collective action to create a more enabling international environment. This global context chapter will be complemented by a thematic chapter focused on national financing frameworks for the SDGs — laying out actions that countries can take to finance their national strategies and plans and implement the Addis Agenda at the country level. The remainder of the report will assess progress in the seven action areas of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.

Domestic and international private business and finance

The private sector represents the largest part of the economy in most countries. It is thus promising that a growing number of investors have expressed interest in taking social and environmental issues into account in their investment decisions. Yet, the impact of this growing interest in sustainable development is unclear, in part because of confusion regarding what sustainable investment means and a lack of consensus on how to measure its impact. Through its analytical work, the Inter-agency Task Force on Financing for Development could help create greater global consensus on the definition of sustainable investment and the measurement of investment impacts, building on both public and private efforts.
