Speaking at a meeting on financing for development, UN chief António Guterres said, “we need more money to implement the Sustainable Development Goals,” adding that “everyone, and particularly developed countries, must meet their commitments in full” for the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.
António Guterres noted that there are tools to tackle poverty, inequality, climate change and environmental pressures. They are the great multilateral agreements reached in 2015: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Addis Ababa Agenda for Action, and the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development follow-up (FfD Forum) is an intergovernmental process with universal participation mandated to review the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (Addis Agenda) and other financing for development outcomes and the means of implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
As decided by Member States in the intergovernmentally agreed conclusions and recommendations of the 2018 FfD Forum (E/FFDF/2018/3), the fourth FfD Forum will be convened by the President of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) from 15 to 18 April 2019 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
The event will bring together ministers, high-level officials from ministries of finance, foreign affairs and development cooperation, Executive Directors of the World Bank and IMF, as well as senior officials from the UN system, including the major institutional stakeholders, and other international organizations. Civil society organizations, the business sector and local authorities will also be represented.
