The objective of the financial landscape analysis (FLA) for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is to provide a comprehensive overview of the financing flows in Belize, with the aim to identify potential approaches and activities that can contribute to greater alignment and investment by all stakeholders toward implementing the UN Multi-country Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (MSDCF).
The FLA focuses on the SDG-related development challenges based on recent financial trends and the current situation. It presents statistical data in relation to public revenues, domestic savings and investment, fiscal capacity, Government domestic and foreign debt, official development assistance, foreign direct investment (FDI), remittances, etc. and examines how these trends and patterns affect efforts to invest in sustainable development in Belize.
This report also investigates the financing for meeting the SDG challenges in Belize, including domestic resource mobilization, the capacity to access development financing from the international community, etc. The analysis of the financing challenges and evolving trends in access to official development assistance may suggest ways to improve SDG financing and investment.
