“The time is coming for the big ideas in targets such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be honed into politically feasible commitments. … Changes in the way development is financed could be treated as goals in themselves. … Next year is a chance to write the next page of the development finance book. As well as a reaffirmation of the critical importance of international public action to achieve collectively agreed objectives (of which international public finance is a part), we also need not just a wish-list but a prioritized plan of action with a specific time frame for changes in global finance” (7/31).
