Regional Consultation on Financing for Development

23 - 23 March 2015

Geneva, Switzerland

In September 2015, UN Member States will adopt a transformative and aspirational post-2015 development agenda, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Its impact will much depend on reaching ambitious agreements and commitments at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, held in Addis Ababa from 13-16 July 2015.

Against this background and at the request of the General Assembly (A/RES/68/279), UNECE and the Regional UN Development Group for Europe and Central Asia held a one-day regional preparatory consultation, focussing on strategies and instruments the UNECE region has to offer to promote resource mobilization for sustainable development and the implementation of the post-2015 development agenda. 
The consultation took stock of trends and needs regarding financing sustainable development in the UNECE region. It also discussed solutions to unlock private resources and ways to set conducive frameworks for resource mobilization and renew and strengthen the global partnership for development.
