On January 29, 2015, Center of Concern is proud to cosponsor, as a member of the transatlantic alliance of Catholic development agencies CIDSE, “Applying Common but Differentiated Responsibilities in a Financing Sustainable Development Context.” This side event is held in the occasion of the First Drafting Session in preparation for the Third Financing for Development Conference, at the UN Headquarters in New York. It is cosponsored with the Permanent mission of Brazil to the United Nations and Social Watch.
Countries have committed to synergy and coherence between the Third International Conference on Financing for Development and the Sustainable Development Goals whose expected adoption will take place at a Summit in September. A crucial challenge will be applying the principles from the sustainable development sphere such as Common but Differentiated Responsibilities and equity in a financing for sustainable development context. This side event will provide an opportunity for officials and civil society representatives to discuss different approaches to such challenge.
