The Mobilisation of Sub-National Revenues Is a Decisive Factor in the Realisation of the 2030 Agenda

Concept notes and papers

This paper addresses theses and recommendations discussed in the scope of the 5th International Workshop on Domestic Revenue Mobilisation (13-14 September 2016) at the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE ) in Bonn. The subject of this workshop was the role of sub-national taxation in the implementation of the 2030 agenda. Programme and papers of the event can be viewed at the following website: http://www.die-gdi.de/veranstaltungen/implementing-the-2030-agenda-the-role-of-subnationaltaxation/. Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and implementing the resolutions of the Paris climate conference require that great efforts are made – including those of a financial nature. Many states will have to ensure that untapped or barely used sources of income are developed. Sub-national units such as provinces, departments, districts, and cities will play an increasing role in the mobilisation of public revenues. They are also in the forefront with regard to realisation of the global reform agenda, as many of the objectives concern classic areas of activity of local government: schools, basic medical care, local road construction, public transport, construction of social housing, the supply of drinking water and disposal of waste water, refuse collection etc. These services are already the responsibility or co-responsibility of subnational units.
