Goal 17 is to mobilize financial resources for implementing the sustainable development goals

Moving Forward Together – Canada’s 2030 Agenda National Strategy was launched in support of the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to eradicate poverty, safeguard the environment, and ensure that people live in peace and prosperity.

One of these goals (SDG 17) is to ‘Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development.’

The goal aims  at ensuring that individuals and institutions are not left to their own devices in the fight against poverty and environmental degradation The Goal promotes the need for new financial resources to execute the 17 SDGs, as well as global, regional, national, and local collaboration.

Role of the government 

Local governments’ roles and obligations for fulfilling SDG 17 vary substantially depending on the circumstance. In general, they can play a leading role in SDG 17 and actively participate in the formation of partnerships by:

  • Establishing strong ties with local, governmental, and international organizations, as well as the commercial sector and civil society
  • On a local level, addressing corruption and promoting accountability
  • Improving local implementation tools, such as capacity building and tax and revenue collection
  • Assisting developing countries in achieving long-term debt sustainability through integrated policies that promote debt financing, debt relief, and debt restructuring
  • Increasing degrees of decentralized cooperation through advocacy and networking
Multiple objectives

In order to achieve this goal by the U.N. the Canadian government is determined to achieve the list of objectives outlined in this goal, this includes:

  • Strengthen domestic resource mobilization, including through international support to developing countries, to improve domestic capacity for tax and other revenue collection
  • Mobilize additional financial resources for developing countries from multiple sources
  • Promote the development, transfer, dissemination and diffusion of environmentally sound technologies to developing countries on favorable terms, including on concessional and preferential terms, as mutually agreed
  • Enhance international support for implementing effective and targeted capacity-building in developing countries to support national plans to implement all the sustainable development goals
  • Significantly increase the exports of developing countries, in particular with a view to doubling the least developed countries’ share of global exports by 2020
  • Realize timely implementation of duty-free and quota-free market access on a lasting basis for all least developed countries, consistent with World Trade Organization decisions
  • Enhance global macroeconomic stability, including through policy coordination and policy coherence
  • Enhance policy coherence for sustainable development
  • Respect each country’s policy space and leadership to establish and implement policies for poverty eradication and sustainable development
  • Enhance the global partnership for sustainable development, complemented by multi-stakeholder partnerships that mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources, to support the achievement of the sustainable development goals in all countries, in particular developing countries
  • Encourage and promote effective public, public-private and civil society partnerships, building on the experience and resourcing strategies of partnerships
  • By 2030, build on existing initiatives to develop measurements of progress on sustainable development that complement gross domestic product, and support statistical capacity-building in developing countries

Canada’s determination to provide concrete measures to implement the U.N’s sustainable goals will ensure a better quality of life for everyone living in Canada including immigrants.
