Guidelines for parliamentarians on budgeting for the SDGs: Making the most of public resources

Parliamentarians have a key role to play in realizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including in ensuring that funding and resources are invested effectively to support sustainable development. In addition to their responsibilities for translating the SDGs into legislation and monitoring their implementation, parliamentarians are responsible for adopting national budgets, making sure that they address the needs of both men and women and the most vulnerable and ensuring that their governments are held accountable on how resources are spent, and if they are in line with the national and international commitments they made. Parliamentarians should advocate for a complete and coherent integration of the SDGs into budgets.
