The Ministry of Finance has been identified to lead the monitoring of Guyana’s progress towards achieving the relevant targets of the SDGs via the national budgeting process. Thus, these targets and respective indicators inform our national monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and annual budget frameworks.
The Ministry of Finance, supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of the Presidency, work closely with the Budget Agencies in one-on-one sessions to assist in various capacities including:
- understanding some of the SDG Targets
- self-assessing the relevance of existing data and indicators to the SDG Targets
- developing new indicators based on existing data sets
- advising on areas of future focus for planning.
