Needs Assessment, Costing and Financing Strategy for Sustainable Development Goals
Abstract:
SDGs have emerged as a globally agreed common development framework for the planet, people, and their prosperity. They are built on Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and cover a wider range of rights-based sustainable development issues. The ambitious targets of the SDGs and their overarching goal of “Leaving no one behind” call for a well-designed implementation strategy that identifies the right kind of interventions, as well as investment requirements, sources of financing, and partnership mechanisms. As SDGs encompass a diverse set of outputs and activities, they have to be implemented and financed by multiple actors. These include government, private sector, external development partners, cooperatives, NGOs, and households that can afford and finance them in the form of out-of-pocket (OoP) expenses. The primary objective of this study report is to prepare an SDG implementation strategy based on needs assessment, to map out financial resource availability and requirements, and draw up a mechanism for implementation of SDGs. The specific objectives of the study are to: (i) identify interventions necessary for implementation of SDGs; (ii) estimate investment requirements in major SDG areas covering social, economic, infrastructure, and environment sectors; (iii) allocate SDG investment requirements among government, private, and community sectors, including households, cooperatives, and NGOs; (iv) draw up a partnership strategy to engage all stakeholders in the implementation and monitoring of SDGs; and (v) suggest policies and institutions necessary for the implementation of SDGs at the national and subnational levels. At the end, the study describes policies, institutions, organizations, and human capacity, related challenges to implement SDGs, analyses data and resources gaps for monitoring the progress made towards meeting the 2030 targets of SDGs, and provides some of the SDG prioritization issues and way forward. #GOVERNMENTOFNEPALNATIONALPLANNINGCOMMISSION #NeedsAssessment,CostingandFinancingStrategyforNepal’sSDGoals2018
