Domestic resource mobilisation is the most sustainable form of finance for development and is anchored firmly within the United Nations Agenda 2030. ILP's tax reform programme works to support and strengthen the ability of developing country governments’ minimise tax losses from illicit financial flows, and amplify civil society advocacy by strengthening their voices on domestic and international tax matters.
Since our establishment, ILP volunteers have supported governments in negotiations with development partners; provided technical advisory in the formulation of tax policy; trained negotiators in the extractives; and supported civil society organisations advocacy in engagement with national and international bodies on tax matters.
