Financing for Sustainable Development Office

The Office provides coherent and integrated support to Member States in addressing the issues related to financing for development, as well as the means of implementation for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The Office ensures that the intergovernmental processes on financing for development, including the Financing for Development Forum, the Development Cooperation Forum, and the relevant subsidiary bodies of ECOSOC, work in a coherent and mutually reinforcing manner.

The Office also provides support to the Secretary-General in coordinating the participation of United Nations representatives in the G20 processes, as well as other global economic and financial institutions and fora.

The subprogramme plays a critical role in supporting various work streams to mobilize the means of implementation for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, to strengthen the United Nations cooperation with other international organizations in the area of fiscal affairs, and to provide integrated analytical support to the Secretary-General.
