Financing for Sustainable Development Report

The 2022 Financing for Sustainable Development Report: Bridging the Finance Divide identifies a “great finance divide” – the inability of poorer countries to raise sufficient resources and borrow affordably for investment. This contributed to developing countries being unable to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and will hold them back from responding to new crises and investing in sustainable development. Developing countries need reliable and affordable financing to invest in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
