WHO:         UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed

WHAT:       Launch of the Financing for Sustainable Development Report 2024

Financing challenges are at the heart of the current sustainable development crisis. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, increasing geopolitical tensions and intensifying climate shocks, financing gaps are widening. The 2024 Financing for Sustainable Development Report: Financing for Development at a Crossroads is expected to urgently call for the world to close a trillions of dollars financing gap and reform a global financial system which is not fit for the challenges of the 21st century.

The 2024 Financing for Sustainable Development Report, issued by the UN Secretary-General’s Inter-Agency Task Force on Financing for Development, is expected to offer concrete recommendations to scale up investments in the SDGs and recover lost ground. It will say that the Summit of the Future in September 2024 and the Fourth International Conference on Financing for Development Conference in June 2025 are the final opportunities to change trajectory.
