A Geopolitical and Content Analysis of Financing for Development (FfD3)
Regions Refocus 2015 and Third World Network (TWN) with Development Alternatives with Women for a New Era (DAWN) present this attached analysis of government positions and recommendations from regional workshops convened in collaboration with autonomous South based civil society networks in eight sub-regions of the world.
In July 2015 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the governments of the United Nations will negotiate an important political agreement on how to finance, support, and enable the new sustainable development agenda. This Third Conference on Financing for Development, or FfD3, follows a trajectory that began in the late 1990s in recognition of the need for global attention and action to address and overcome systemic inequalities and the achievement of development. The conference will be an arena for a timely and foundational agreement on how to finance development through public and private means, and through domestic and international policies and programs. It will result in an intergovernmental negotiated and agreed outcome, which will lay the groundwork for this landmark year of global agreements, particularly the two major intergovernmental negotiations that follow it: the Post-2015 Summit, to define the sustainable development agenda, and COP21 of the UNFCCC, a major legally-binding agreement on who bears responsibility for climate change and how.
