Why disaggregate data?
By some estimates, achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 will require mobilizing an additional $2.5 trillion per year from diverse sources, such as development aid, domestic budgets, and private investment. At the same time, we have no reliable or harmonized way to measure these different financial flows.
We need better data to understand whether and how different sources of financing advance the SDGs and start to answer questions such as:
- Are development partners living up to their commitments?
- Where are the greatest shortfalls and surfeits in funding for sustainable development?
- Do more resources lead to better outcomes?
