Civil Society Response to the FfD Elements Paper

From the CSO Response


This document has been developed by the very broad international group of Civil Society Organizations following the Financing for Development (FfD) process. While the group is diverse and positions might differ on specific issues, this document expresses the elements of common concern.

We welcome the opportunity to provide our comments on the FfD Elements Paper. Overall, we find that the document provides a good starting point for the first drafting session (with the caveat on the structure of the outcome document which is mentioned below) and includes most (but not all) of the policy proposals necessary to ensure a successful outcome of the Third Conference on Financing for Development.


1. Overarching issues and concerns

2. Comments on the sections of the Elements Paper

3. Specific comments on the list of policy ideas in the annex
