financing for development
In December 1999 the UN General Assembly agreed to a collaboration between the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the World Trade Organisation (WTO) to find ways to improve the financing for development. This section of the website highlights some landmarks on the Financing for Development process as well as civil society’s views and recommendations.
Broad support for policies and actions that will generate resources in support of the implementation of a new sustainable development agenda emerged from the United Nations Third International Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in July 2015. A negotiating process spanned more than two years and featured the unprecedented participation of civil society.
The Conference resulted in the adoption of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, a comprehensive framework to guide policies that will mobilize financial resources, as well as the launch of new initiatives to finance the achievement of the proposed sustainable development goals, including on social welfare, access to clean energy, and greater cooperation on tax issues.
This section of the website provides information on the Financing for Development process as well as civil society's views and recommendations.
