The first edition of the report of the Inter-agency Task Force on Financing for Development maps out the commitments and action items contained in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and lays out howthe Task Force will monitor their implementation in future years.

The Task Force has carefully gone through the full range of these commitments and action items to create a framework for monitoring. It compiled them into nine chapters — on cross-cutting issues, the seven action areas of the Addis Agenda, and on data. In each chapter, commitments and actions are organized by thematic clusters, for which the Task Force presents options for monitoring.

Chapter 2A, para 7.3, dedicated to "Subnational urban development / planning, subantional financing" specifies:

"The Addis Agenda acknowledges that in some countries expenditures and investments in sustainable
development are being devolved to the subnational level, and that these institutions may lack the capacity to effectively implement the Addis Agenda and, by extension, the 2030 Agenda."

"In terms of the financial health of subnational entities, there is insufficient data available at the global level that would allow for a comprehensive assessment. Efforts are underway to fill some of these data gaps (...) Case studies and examples of successful instances of donor collaboration to strengthen subnational finance and lessons learned would be useful and desirable."
