Regional perspectives and the role of the UN Regional Commissions

 Objective

To share best practices and lessons learned from experiences and effective policies in the regions on implementing the Addis Ababa Action Agenda framework and unlocking the resources needed to achieve the 2030 Agenda.

Expected Outcomes

Member States and other stakeholders will have a better understanding of shared priorities across different regions for the implementation of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda framework, as well as a better appreciation of the role of the regional commissions in reinforcing the Addis Ababa framework through their intergovernmental platforms and the services that they offer, based on their policy and analytical strength, as well as knowledge of their respective regions.

Focus Areas

The regional commissions have taken steps to further prioritize and factor “regional realities, contexts and levels of development”, within the broad scope of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, which entails more than a hundred and fifty commitments and global mandates. Some of the shared priorities across different regions, which will be addressed during the event, include the following:

  1. Improving domestic revenue mobilization
  2. Strengthening public expenditure management
  3. Private sector engagement and financing
  4. Public-private partnerships for infrastructure
  5. Enhancing financial inclusion
  6. Promoting regional financial integration
  7. Financing for Development advocacy, consultation and institutional networking
