The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction for 2015-2030 and the Paris climate accord map out a new development agenda. Fulfilling this new agenda will entail sweeping changes in the approach to sustainable development that will, in turn, call for the mobilization of a massive amount of internal and external resources, along with changes in the way that initiatives are financed and organized and in the way that resources are allocated.
