GFA NEWSLETTER 01//2021: COMPLIANCE AND ACCOUNTABILITY AS CORNERSTONES OF PUBLIC FINANCE MANAGEMENT
Ever since the UN General Assembly adopted the Agenda 2030 in 2015, its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have become part of GFA’s professionals reference guide. The 2015 Addis Financing for Development Agenda recognizes the relevance of sound public financial management as a transversal element underpinning the achievement of the SDGs. In this newsletter, the company’s Public Finance Management Team offers an overview of how GFA contributes to the SDGs. Toolboxes and technical expertise were refined to serve multilateral institutions and multi-donor funds for infrastructure or other public goods with their financial pledges for the fight against Covid-19 geared towards the SDGs. Fiscal Agent services ensure transparency, accountability and efficiency in the use of external funds.
