Abstract

Session 1: Domestic resource mobilization

One of the most pressing issues for any country determined to invest in sustainable development is to raise the necessary resources, particularly through taxation. For many economies in the region, tax revenue collection is neither sufficient nor equitable. This session explores ways to enhance domestic investable resources including through (i) strengthening tax revenues in the region, (ii) reprioritizing public expenditure and making it more development oriented and (iii) making more effective use of natural resource revenues for investing in development.
