The mobilization of financial resources and their effective use for sustainable development, and the global partnership for sustainable development in the context of post-2015 development agenda are among the topics to be discussed. Also in New York on the 15th, Caliari will co-host “Inequality: Jobs with Growth and Equity.” This seminar will be the inaugural one in a series of closed seminars for Executive Directors of the World Bank and the IMF that Center of Concern co-organizes with the Friedrich Ebert Foundation. The whole series, to run through the rest of 2014 and early 2015, will focus on Key Issues in Financing a New Generation of Development Goals that are of relevance to the Bretton Woods Institutions.
