Since the July 2015 Financing for Development Conference in Ethiopia, the global community has coalesced around domestic resource mobilization (DRM) as a central means for developing countries to enhance economic stability, deliver public services, and fulfill the promise of the Sustainable Development Goals.
During this session, Steve Rozner, Senior Fiscal Advisor for the U.S. Agency for International Development, will reflect on international experience and evidence of what works in improving DRM and provide his perspective on the importance of "getting the basics right."
Steve Rozner is senior fiscal advisor in USAID's Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and the Environment. Steve supports the Agency's programming, technical leadership, and international cooperation in the area of domestic resource mobilization (DRM).
