CoC attends Mexico-convened retreat on Financing for Development

Rethinking Bretton Woods | Tue, Jan 26, 2016

On January 28-29, 2016, CoC team member Aldo Caliari will be in Mexico City to attend a retreat of the “Friends of Monterrey”, an informal group of countries convened by the Mexican government to support the follow-up and implementation of the Financing for Development Conference. The name of the group alludes to the first conference on Financing for Development, held in Monterrey (Mexico) in 2002. The most recent one took place last year in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) and this year the first meeting of the renewed and strengthened follow up mechanism will take place in New York.

The day before, January 27, in Washington DC, he will be on a panel part of a consultation on the Situation of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights called by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights. At that occasion he will address impacts of US financial and investment policy.
