Welcome to the Global Tax Program
The Global Tax Program (GTP) supports advisory services and technical assistance focused on strengthening tax institutions and mobilizing revenues fairly and efficiently at the international and domestic levels.
Domestic Revenue Mobilization (DRM) is a central pillar of the global 2030 Financing for Development agenda, reflecting the financing needed in many developing countries to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Global Tax Program serves as a key vehicle to delivering the Bank’s domestic revenue mobilization (DRM) Approach. This approach is centered around supporting countries’ efforts in raising more and better revenues to achieve the SDGs by (i) promoting fairness, equity, and inclusive growth, and (ii) ensuring a stable, predictable, and sustainable fiscal environment.
Taxes have a key role to play in making growth sustainable, inclusive, and equitable, especially in the context of the COVID-19 crisis, and through such efforts as greening of tax systems, curbing consumption of unhealthy products, gender equality, and fighting tax evasion and avoidance.
