It helps identify opportunities to mobilise additional sources of finance and use existing financial resources more efficiently to achieve the 2030 Agenda.  The DFA offers support for governments and their partners in identifying and building consensus around solutions, aiming to address financing challenges through multi-stakeholder consultations and developing a joint road map that can support progress across a range of areas.

Country case


The Development Finance Assessment in Timor-Leste (2019), led by the Prime Minister's Office and Ministry of Finance with support from UNDP and the EU, presents an analysis of the current trends in public and private financing and forward-looking scenarios, based on a wide-reaching data collection exercise. The assessment also identified identifies gaps, opportunities and policy reforms that can mobilise new forms of financing, strengthen collaboration across ministries and with the private sector, and bolster government policies for managing, measuring and influencing financing for national priorities. The recommendations and action plan included establishing an overarching financing strategy, a national investment promotion strategy, and an integrated infrastructure investment strategy. The country is now strengthening its Integrated National Financing Framework as a catalyst for positive policy reforms across public and private financing.
