UNEP Policy Brief on Fiscal Policies and the SDGs

Delivering the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires the mobilisation and effective use of all available sources of financing. Among the finance options available, the role of fiscal policies will be particularly important. Fiscal policies can mobilize domestic recourses, encourage efficient use of public spending, stimulate private investment and shift consumer behaviour. This policy brief by UN Environment explores how fiscal policies can facilitate the transition to an inclusive green economy and support the delivery of several SDGs.
