As governments negotiate the Third Financing for Development Conference (FFD 3) to be held in Addis Ababa (13-16 July 2015), an important decision that they will have to make refers to the follow-up process.
The Conference offers an opportunity to strengthen a follow-up that has so far fallen short of what is required for a sustained dialogue within the UN on the holistic picture of financing for development flows. This happens as the international community is embarking on the most ambitious agenda ever in the form of the Sustainable Development Goals. In this piece, CIDSE --the international alliance of Catholic development agencies, of which Center of Concern is a member-- offers some thoughts on the international dimensions of such follow-up, and urges governments in Addis Ababa to step up to the challenge.
