Financing the Future: How can we accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals? (Arendalsuka)

The universally adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set 17 goals and 169 targets to ensure significant global, social and environmental progress by 2030, but now we need to accelerate the delivery of what we promised; an end to extreme poverty, ensuring healthy lives and well-being, and ultimately, a world where no one is left behind.

  • What is the most effective way of translating the global SDG framework into concrete action at the national level?
  • What role should and can different stakeholders play?
  • How can outcome-oriented partnerships be formed, replicated and scaled?
  • What are the new models that will enable us to close the funding gap?

Welcome to this interactive discussion which will explore the approaches, partnerships and platforms that are emerging to accelerate progress on the Sustainable Development Goals. The event is hosted by the Global Finacning Facility, Gavi – the Global Vaccine Alliance, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The session will consist of a moderated panel discussion followed by an interactive Q&A with the audience. Please arrive early, as seating is limited.
