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.
The UNDP Tax for Sustainable Development Goals Initiative (Tax for SDGs) supports developing countries in increasing domestic resource mobilisation and achieving the SDGs. It is managed by the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS’s) Sustainable Finance Hub (SFH), with resource persons embedded in the SDG Finance Teams in Amman, Bangkok, Istanbul, Panama and Pretoria.
Taxes are the key funding source for investments in achieving the SDGs. Tax policy can influence desired behaviours and help attract additional investment. In addition, taxes are vital to fostering a stronger social contract between the citizens and the state. Tax for SDGs has a particular emphasis on linking tax administration and tax and fiscal policies with the broader SDGs. As one of its workstreams, Tax for SDGs supports the implementation of the joint OECD/UNDP Tax Inspectors Without Borders Initiative (TIWB). Further, building on UNDP CO portfolios and already existing engagements with Ministries, Tax for SDGs brings a stronger focus on the role of tax and fiscal policy in achieving the 2023 Agenda. 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. Representing the views of developing countries in the global normative tax discussions is critical and to this effect Tax for SDGs also works to bring evidence and perspectives from developing countries into the regional and international discussions on taxation.
