Financing for Development: CSOs respond to zero draft

Rethinking Bretton Woods | Sat, Apr 25, 2015

 

On March 17th 2015 the co-facilitators of the Third Financing for Development Conference, to be held in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) in July of this year, released the initial draft (“zero draft”) for negotiations.

Center of Concern is part of a Rapid Response Group among civil society organizations following the conference which prepared a detailed response with analysis and alternative language proposals.

“The third FfD outcome document should not result in a retrogression from the achievements of the Monterrey Consensus of 2002 and the Doha Declaration for Development of 2008,” the document says, warning that "Any downward movement from the achievements of Monterrey and Doha will not bode well for the expectations that Addis Ababa will help build trust toward an ambitious outcome in the post-2015 development agenda and a climate deal at the COP 21 in Paris.”
