The High-level Dialogue on Financing for Development will take place under the overarching theme: Financing the SDGs for a world where no one is left behind. It will be a critical moment to follow up on the implementation of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, and to show political support at the highest level for financing sustainable development.
  • Opening
  • Interactive roundtable 1:  Theme "Reforming the international financial architecture to achieve the SDGs". It will feature segments on 1) Fostering debt sustainability and strengthening the global financial safety net; and 2) Promoting inclusive and effective international tax cooperation and mobilizing domestic resources. 

The High-level Dialogue represents an important platform for Member States and other stakeholders to discuss creative solutions to the current challenges and to advance the means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The High-level Dialogue will be a one-day meeting held back-to-back with the 2023 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Summit, and will feature the participation of leaders from government, representatives of the private sector and civil society, international financial institutions, including Multilateral Development Banks, academia, and other relevant actors.  

Despite progress since the adoption of the Addis Agenda, growing uncertainties and risks threaten development progress and sustainable finance prospects. As global challenges are more integrated, responses become increasingly fragmented. Facing this context, it is more important than ever to bring financing sustainable development to the center of the international agenda. The High-level Dialogue will aim to renew global commitment to financing at the highest political level. It will serve as a UN call for collective action to energize growth and tackle challenges in the global economy, encourage public and private investment to align with the 2030 Agenda, and promote new and innovative initiatives that target gaps in financing sustainable development.
