End poverty in all its forms everywhere

Target 1.a: Ensure significant mobilization of resources from a variety of sources, including through enhanced development cooperation, in order to provide adequate and predictable means for developing countries, in particular least developed countries, to implement programmes and policies to end poverty in all its dimensions

Resources for development come from a variety of sources, including public budgets, donors (e.g. loans or grants from international institutions), the private sector (e.g. domestic or foreign investment, philanthropic activities) or a combination of these sources. An important factor for mobilizing those resources is the creation of an enabling environment that attracts potential donors and investors and provides the means for businesses of all sizes to establish and to thrive. UNCITRAL standards help to establish such an environment, in particular by removing obstacles to the flow of international trade, thus helping to generate resources in the public and private sectors, including through donor finance.
