The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is the knowledge frontier organization for collective action to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). UNDP’s policy and programme work, carried out at HQ, Regional and Country Office (CO) levels, form a contiguous spectrum of deep, local knowledge to cutting-edge global perspectives and advocacy. Within this context, UNDP invests in a network of field-based and global technical expertise across a wide range of knowledge domains and in support of the signature solutions and organizational capabilities envisioned in the Strategic Plan.
The Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS’s) Finance Sector Hub (FSH) manages the UNDP Tax and TIWB Project, with resource persons embedded in the SDG Finance Teams in Amman, Bangkok, Istanbul, Panama and Pretoria.
The UNDP Tax and TIWB Project emphasizes linking tax administration and tax and fiscal policies with the broader SDGs. Building on UNDP Country Office portfolios and already existing engagements with Ministries, and other key stakeholders, UNDP will bring a stronger focus on the role of tax and fiscal policy in achieving Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. The project places a particular focus on reducing gender and social inequalities in tax and fiscal policy as well as taking forward climate action and environmental goals, and health outcomes. In addition, representing the views of developing countries in the global normative tax discussions is critical. To this effect, the UNDP Tax and TIWB Project will also work to bring evidence and perspectives from developing countries into the regional and international discussions on taxation.
