On May 27-28, David Lezhava, Public Policy Sector Director at PMCG, participated in UNDP’s Istanbul Development Dialogues (IDD) in the panel “Incentivizing Change: The Role of Public Finance Management.”
IDD is a global development forum, which gathers policy-makers, business leaders, and diverse experts to discuss current issues. This year, the forum was focused on assessing the reality of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aims to tackle various challenges in the world as part of its Agenda 2030.
The panel discussion covered the best practices in public finance management for sustainable development, and the best ways for governments to attract commercial investment to pursue the SDGs. Moreover, the core changes needing to be made to enhance the effectiveness of sustainable financing were also discussed.
“In order to achieve our mission, it is vital to have coordination at international and domestic levels. I know that cooperation between various actors, which provide finances, as well as within the governments is key to global success,” said Lezhava.
