Civil Society Statement on Policy Coherence (Signed by 40 Networks and NGOs)
ECOSOC Special High-Level meeting with the Bretton Woods Institutions and the World Trade Organization (April 14, 2003)
The UN Financing for Development (FFD) conference produced a consensus among all governments on the need to enhance the coherence and consistency of the international monetary, financial and trading systems, to ensure that they support the internationally agreed development goals. These goals include not only those contained in the Millennium Declaration, but also the agreed outcomes of the past decade's UN Conferences on gender, social development, environment, and so forth.
In this statement, 40 civil society organizations and networks articulate their demands on measures that could promote these objective.
