HLPF side-event: Paris Collaborative on Green Budgeting – Using the tools of budgetary policy-making towards the implementation of SDGs

July 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

The Paris Collaborative on Green Budgeting aims to support governments to “green” their fiscal policy and embed environmental sustainability commitments and green growth within budget and policy frameworks. This implies using national expenditure and revenue processes to support climate and environmental goals towards sustainable and resilient societies. This side-event is hosted by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), in collaboration with UN Environment and the governments of France and Mexico and will take place during the 2018 High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. The objective of this side event is to discuss, disseminate and further develop new and innovative tools that provide practical assistance to governments in understanding the implications of the ecological transition for budgetary policy and fiscal sustainability. In particular, the event aims to enable the exchange of existing best practices and peer learning and to build partnerships among different actors to advocate for proposed reforms.

For further information, see the event concept note. Please register for the event by 11 July 2018. Contact: Juliane.Jansen@oecd.org; Adam.Kegley@oecd.org
