The EGM provided a platform for various stakeholders to debate and consolidate analytical understanding of how the SDGs could be financed in the Asian region with its heterogenic features, with a special focus on three thematic areas: the Asian Experience on Public Private Partnership (PPP); Role of Overseas Remittances in Promoting Growth and Alleviating Poverty in Asia; and Financing Data and Information Needs for Monitoring and Accountability Mechanism of the Post-2015 Agenda. An overarching framework for examining the practical scope for financing development in the Asian region was also presented at the opening session, which was a public event.
