Fiscal Policy Options for Resilient and Sustainable Development


Commonwealth Secretariat


Creating enabling environments and the capacity to access and generate multidimensional financing for development, climate change and enhanced resilience, remains challenging amid global pressures. One feasible approach is to revisit the criteria for financing allocation and the management of earmarked international transfers and debt relief.

This paper focuses on fiscal policy options for resilient and sustainable development. An appropriate design and mix of national taxes would help raise revenues efficiently, reduce the cost of doing business and the barriers to exports, and encourage economic integration to counteract disruptions in global value chains.
