In the lead up to the Third Financing For Development (FFD) Conference, to be held in Addis Ababa, July 2015, governments are inquiring whether the structure of the Monterrey Outcome Document should be maintained.
CIDSE’s answer is a resounding yes. In short, a departure from the structure of the Monterrey Consensus would be ill-advised and prone to deepen mistrust at a time when all possible efforts should be put into strengthening trust to ensure ambitious outcomes for the three important conferences that will take place in 2015.
This briefing note produced by CIDSE lays out the main arguments put forward to justify a departure from the Monterrey Consensus structure, and why they do not convince.
