2016 Workshop

Financing for the Sustainable Development Goals:  The role of fiscal reforms, revenue management and sovereign wealth funds in the extractive sector

7-8 December 2016, Bangkok, Thailand

Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires financing from all available sources. Resource-rich countries have an opportunity to raise significant public finances to support the SDGs from resource extraction. However, in some of these countries, the fiscal regime, governance structures and capacities affect the scale and use of revenues from the sector. 

This workshop explored how to raise and use revenues from the extractive sector to support the SDGs, while reducing some of the negative environmental and social impacts of mining activities. This is the third regional workshop of the Green Fiscal Policy Network (UNEP, IMF, GIZ), organised in collaboration with the UNDP-UNEP Poverty Environment Initiative Asia-Pacific.
