ESDN Quarterly Report April 2019

Budgeting for the SDGs in Europe: Experiences, Challenges and Needs

by Eric Mulholland & Gerald Berger

The topic of this European Sustainable Development Network (ESDN) Quarterly Report (QR) is budgeting for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Europe. It provides an overview how European countries are approaching budgeting for the SDGs in their attempts to align budgets along the Goals, which experiences they made, and which challenges still lie ahead. This Report represents one of the first attempts to provide a comprehensive overview on this topic in Europe. The Report acknowledges the increasing importance of this topic for European policymakers and hopes that the information contained herein spurs further discussion on budgeting for the SDGs in Europe, as only a couple of countries have explicitly integrated the SDGs into their budgets so far.
