A successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships. Goal17 is a call to mobilize, redirect and unlock the transformative power of public and private financing to deliver on all the other sixsteen SDGs. Monitoring frameworks, regulations and incentive structures can enable such investments. All the financing solutions reviewed in this website contribute to the achievement of Goal 17.

Targets of Goal 17

  • Strengthen domestic resource mobilization, including through international support to developing countries, to improve domestic capacity for tax and other revenue collection.
  • Developed countries to implement fully their official development assistance commitments, including the commitment by many developed countries to achieve the target of 0.7 per cent of ODA/GNI to developing countries and 0.15 to 0.20 per cent of ODA/GNI to least developed countries ODA providers are encouraged to consider setting a target to provide at least 0.20 per cent of ODA/GNI to least developed countries.
  • Mobilize additional financial resources for developing countries from multiple sources
  • Assist developing countries in attaining long-term debt sustainability through coordinated policies aimed at fostering debt financing, debt relief and debt restructuring, as appropriate, and address the external debt of highly indebted poor countries to reduce debt distress.
  • Adopt and implement investment promotion regimes for least developed countries.
