CONFERENCE ON FINANCING FOR DEVELOPMENT: TIME FOR GLOBAL ACTION

FfD_Logo-140A great deal of hope is riding on the upcoming conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa this month. High-level representatives will gather from all over the world, including governments and the private sector (business), and civil society will be an influential member of the process as well. An essential part of the implementation of the Sustainable Development Agenda, this conference will address how governments and other stakeholders can cooperate on means of reaching the goals and how far member states will go in order to financially assist each other.

Mobilization of resources to eradicate poverty is the basis for the future of development; it is not only a priority of developing countries but of developed ones as well. The Addis Ababa Accord will apply to all countries and be based on multilateral cooperation with shared goals and means of implementation for what urgently needs to be accomplished.
