Financing Sustainable Development: Moving from Momentum to Transformation in a Time of Turmoil

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement represent the most ambitious multilateral goals ever set. These goals require an unprecedented mobilization of both public and private finance – some US$90 trillion over the next 15 years.

Momentum is also growing to align at a more fundamental level the financial system with sustainable development. Despite this positive momentum, progress remains inadequate, with an accelerating decline in all major ecosystems, and growing economic inequality and social challenges.
