Mobilizing sufficient financing remains a major challenge in implementing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Despite signs of progress, investments that are critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) remain underfunded. Interest in sustainable financing is growing, but the sustainability transition in the financial system is not happening at the required scale. Systemic risks are rising and parts of the multilateral system are under strain. This 2019 Financing for Sustainable Development Report, produced in collaboration with over 60 agencies of the United Nations system and partner international organizations (the Interagency Task Force on Financing for Development), recognizes the scale and urgency of the challenge. But it also sees opportunity for revisiting national and global approaches to sustainable finance.
