Following growing need in scaling up financing for the SDGs, UNDP’s priorities include involvement with the private sector to mobilize its capital towards achieving the SDGs at policy and specific investments levels through facilitating and providing advice on blended finance, impact investment, SDG alignment and Impact Measurement and Management.  UNDP’s Sustainable Finance Hub (SFH) developed several service lines availed to businesses and investors to align their investments towards the SDGs – these include engaging and enabling institutional and private investors; co-creating and innovating impact factored financial tools for development; leveraging private capital into SDG and climate aligned investment opportunities.  In Asia and the Pacific region, the SDG Finance team of Regional Bureau for Asia Pacific (RBAP), in collaboration with UNDP Global Policy Network, provides support to 24 UNDP Country Offices in the region in pioneering dedicated catalytic facilities and engagement frameworks to implement those service lines and through their application elevate social, economic and environmental impacts of private sector investments in the context of SDGs.


Mobilizing private sector sources for SDG finance is achieved through combination of activities focused on impact advisory (impact measurement and management (IMM) approaches, metrics and standards), identifying SGD targeting business-based solutions, aligning business strategies and operations with SDGs, impact performance incentives for both capital providers and recipient businesses.
