This event was part of a series of webinars "Financing the 2030 Agenda in a vulnerable world", organised within the framework of the Initiative for Development and Global Governance (IDGM)

This second session addressed the fundamental issue of adequate mobilisation of budgetary resources and efficiency of public spending. The pursuit of SDGs indeed implies budgetary and fiscal policies that make it possible to finance the necessary public spending surplus and to guide the behaviour of economic agents in this direction. This question is even more relevant in view of the budgetary consequences of the Covid crisis19.
