Sustainable Development Finance Assessment

Sustainable Development Finance Assessment will adapt, extend and enhance UNCTAD gap analysis tool to estimate the impact of meeting the 2030 Agenda on developing countries’ long-term debt sustainability in the context of the COVID-19 crisis. The country-specific debt sustainability assessments will move away from sequential prioritization of meeting short-run external debt obligations - which have become even more stressful in the midst of the economic fallout of COVID-19 - to a longer-term debt framework that enable developing countries to both meet their debt obligations in the long-run and to attain the SDGs, starting with Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
