The Sustainable Development Goals, Domestic Resource Mobilization and the Poor

Nora Lustig ()

No 1713, Working Papers from Tulane University, Department of Economics

Abstract: Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals will require fiscal resources to deliver the floors in social protection, social services and infrastructure embedded in them. A significant portion of these resources is expected to come from tax collection in developing countries. Raising additional revenues domestically, however, may leave a significant portion of the poor with less cash to buy food and other essential goods. The demand for additional resources must be balanced against the competing need to protect poor households from becoming poorer as a result of taxes.
