Service # 3 Improving accountability and impact measurement for SDG-aligned budgets

UNDP supports budgetary accountability on the SDGs by improving integration of the SDGs into various elements of budgetary cycles to provide regular and systematic mechanisms for better measurement of the impact of budgetary expenditures on SDGs. 

This service enables effective dialogue between Governments and relevant non-executive Stakeholders, by advising budgetary decisions on SDG Policies and Targets (i.e. SDG-informed budget formats), addressing the knowledge gap on effectiveness and efficiency of certain budgetary interventions whilst pursuing various SDG goals.  UNDP also facilitates budgetary scrutiny for parties of interest, amongst which may include parliament committees, civil societies, independent evaluators, think-tanks etc.
