As the world moves into the final decade for achieving the 2030 Agenda, the Secretary-General’s Financing Strategy and Roadmap puts accelerating investments in sustainable development at the heart of the UN’s efforts to support Member States ramp-up implementation of the AAAA to realize the SDGs and the goals of the Paris Agreement. The release of the Secretary-General’s Financing Roadmap in 2019 is particularly relevant within the context of the 74th session of the UN General Assembly. Key summits and highlevel meetings will be held in September 2019, taking stock of progress made on the SDGs since 2015, increasing commitments to scale up SDG implementation and raising ambition on climate action. Notably, the specific actions of the Secretary-General and the work of the UN system on financing sustainable development in collaboration with its partners will support Member States identify pathways that can unleash the might of the global financial system and real economy to meet the ambitions of realizing the 2030 Agenda. For instance, during the 2019 High-Level Dialogue on Financing for Development, the Secretary-General’s Task Force on Digital Financing of the SDGs will share their interim report with insights gathered through cutting edge research and a wide range of consultations across the global financial system and fintech ecosystem. The GISD Alliance established by Secretary-General will hold its inaugural meeting to begin to identify ways to unblock impediments and implement solutions for scaling long-term investment for sustainable development. Progress on execution of Parts I and II within Roadmap will be shared through the UN Sustainable Development Group. The UN regularly reports on progress against its activities highlighted in Part III. This Roadmap is a living document. It will evolve and adapt to leverage new opportunities and mitigate risks, in order to ensure that the Secretary-General and the UN system provide relevant, timely and effective support to Member States to turn the tide of financing to invest in sustainable, inclusive development for all.
