SDG budget tagging (includes methodology and report on SDG budget tagging)

UNDP-BSDGsReport-EN_v03-1-cover Ukraine

Since 2015, a number of reforms have been launched in Ukraine aimed at implementing socio-economic transformations and strengthening the country’s democratic system. SDGs are being integrated into public policy according to the principles of the SDGs Agenda until 2030. The inclusive SDGs adaptation process, which has been adapted to the national development context, has led to the creation of a national SDGs system consisting of 86 national goals with 183 monitoring indicators. The implementation of  the SDGs requires the involvement of various stakeholders at different tiers of government, and it is necessary to tag the budget code for each goal and indicator at the national, oblast and local municipalities level.

The report contains:

  1. Detailed methodology and techniques for SDG budget tagging com­patible with the existing national economic, budgetary, and public finance management system;
  2. Results of the Budget tagging exercise for the State Budget 2020, for three Regional budgets, and for three Community budgets;
  3. Budget Tagging Of The Ukrainian Budget System with Sustainable Development Goals (BSDG) existing limitations;
  4. Methodology of BSDG strategy development;
  5. Annexes that include the BSDG Strategy and Guidelines for the different governance levels.

The report also explains which budget/programme code contributes to the achievement of which SDG, keeping in mind that certain programmes will contribute to more than one SDG, and thus need a weightage base for coding/reporting purposes.

The report has been prepared by UNDP in the framework of implementation of the “Promoting strategic planning and financing for sustainable development at the national and regional levels in Ukraine” Joint Programme.

To reinforce Ukraine’s SDG financing architecture, UNDP as the lead agency, together with WHO, UNICEF and the non-resident agency UNECE, is implementing a comprehensive Joint Programme to promote strategic planning and financing for sustainable development in Ukraine.
