Meeting the ambitious set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will require unprecedented
mobilization of resources, partnerships, and knowledge on how to attain the goals at the global, national
and subnational levels. This seminar, a collaboration with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the Equitable Growth,Finance and Institutions Global Practice (EFI) of the World Bank, and the World Bank Group Senior Vice Presidency for the 2030 Development Agenda, UN Relations and Partnerships, aims to reinvigorate the discussion of how public expenditures and its management are of critical importance to the achievement of the SDGs mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. It is vital to combine adequate financial resources and good policies, with institutional arrangements that not only support aggregate fiscal discipline, but also strategic prioritization and operational performance that lead to sustainable
development outcomes.

However, you can join the discussion on how the implementation of the 2030 Agenda can be
accelerated by linking better strategic planning mechanisms at country level with the use of available
financial resources by identifying good practices, bottlenecks, and gaps, in public expenditure processes
that are supportive of aggregate fiscal discipline and allocative and technical efficiency—countries need
to spend not only more, but also better.

As a member of the United Nations Major Group on Business and Industry, ISO certified implementers
and auditors, our team has the expertise to assist your agency / organization with SDG strategy and
implementation. We advocate and consult on equitable distribution of sovereign wealth of Nations like
Nigeria through SDGS.
