Fresh Ideas for Development: Skill-sharing to Stop Tax Avoidance

Budget resources are the lifeblood for any government to be able to deliver to its citizens. In development work, domestic resource mobilization capacity is also the bedrock for a sustainable change. But every year, developing countries lose tremendous amounts of their potential revenue to tax evasion and illicit financial flows. It is not a stretch to say that helping local governments to combat these leaks and enhance their fiscal governance can not only deliver economic gain, but also create opportunity to advance on the costly UN Sustainable Development Goals.
