The Politics of Domestic Resource Mobilization for Social Development— Research and Policy Brief
At a time when the development community is grappling with the challenge of raising the required investment to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to address the socio-economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, countries’ mobilization of their own domestic resources for social development is more important than ever. This Brief summarizes UNRISD research showing that while increased international solidarity is indispensable to help shoulder the financial burden of crisis response and of investment in the socio-ecological transformation required to truly meet the SDGs, expanding fiscal space and capacity in the global South will be key for building a new social contract that is inclusive and sustainable.
UNRISD Research and Policy Briefs aim to improve the quality of development dialogue. They situate the Institute’s research within wider social development debates, synthesize its findings and draw out issues for consideration in decision-making processes. They provide this information in a concise format that should be of use to policy makers, scholars, activists, journalists and others.
