Government budget and the Sustainable Development Goals: the Philippine experience

Rosario G. Manasan : 2020

The Philippine planning and budgeting systems are well placed in terms of their capacity to support the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and could serve as a useful reference for other countries. This study supports efforts to put in place an SDG expenditure tagging exercise to assist policy makers in evaluating the effectiveness of the SDG-related programmes of various government agencies and in prioritizing its limited resources. It recommends that current efforts towards SDG localization be intensified given that recent Supreme Court ruling will effectively increase the share of local governments in national taxes.
