Financing for Development- stock-taking at the UN| Part 1

The ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development (FfD Forum) is dedicated to reviewing not only the fulfillment of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and its predecessors (the 2002 Monterrey Consensus and the 2008 Doha Declaration on Financing for Development), but also the means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and feeding its results into the annual High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).

During negotiation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as the various follow-up processes, it has been emphasized that without the allocation of additional resources, new sources of funding, changes in international collaboration and systemic reforms, the attainment of the SDGs will remain wishful thinking.
