Welcome to the United Nations
Ministers and high‑level representatives adopted a series of conclusions and recommendations on financing for development and the means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development on 24 April 2018 during the Economic and Social Council’s forum on financing for development.
Final Draft of the outcome document (19 April 2018)
New and emerging digital technologies have the potential to alleviate key constraints and market failures that impede sustainable development finance, such as weak contract enforcement, cumbersome administrative procedures, and paucity of information and data. They can contribute to reducing inefficiencies and to cost savings across the action areas of the Addis Agenda, but they also raise new challenges and risks for policymakers and regulators.
