The commitment to achieving the SDGs needs to be complemented by concrete financing solutions across funding sources, including the public and private sectors. The COVID-19 crisis has presented additional financing challenges, especially as Governments expand social protection systems and re-prioritize spending on health and education. Financing for development policies serve as key means of implementation of the COVID-19 recovery, and of an SDG-centric build-forward agenda.

This background note presents facts on the impact of COVID-19 on SDG 17 in the Arab region, with a focus on finance, the measures taken by Arab governments as well as the most at risk of being left behind, and introduces some policy recommendations for ensuring an inclusive recovery and achieving SDG 17 by 2030.
