Financing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Guatemala


Published on

This is a presentation by Edwin Ariel Pereira, of National Forestry Institute, Instituto Nacional de Bosques, on financing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Guatemala.

Jones gave the presentation during a session on decentralised forestry finance at the Money Where It Matters (MWIM) event, held in London from 7-8 December 2016.

The purpose of the MWIM event was to reflect on our insights and explore further how financing mechanisms can more effectively channel resources to the local level, and identify opportunities to increase flows of finance to the local level in new contexts for development assistance and national investment.

Participants at the event also agreed on outstanding questions that require further research on finance for and with local actors to achieve the effective use and management of funds to deliver climate resilient sustainable development.
