UN Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa
2015 three major events of the United Nations took place:
- The Third International Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa in July 2015,
- The United Nations Summit to adopt the Post-2015 Development Agenda in New York in September 2015,
- The 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP21/CMP11) in Paris in November and December 2015.
These three summit meetings are inextricably linked. The UN Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa in July 2015 was meant to clear the path for implementing the Post-2015 Agenda and set the tone for the 2015 Paris climate deal. A sound funding base was essential to lend credibility to these agreements. In line with the principle of universality, it was also decisive that the global community would reach an accord on common sustainability and climate objectives obliging all countries equally, be they industrialised countries, emerging economies or developing countries. Against this backdrop the question arised, what could the Addis Ababa Accord contribute to paving the way for this unique process of common global responsibility?
The research staff of the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) covers in publications and events analyses of key financial and non-financial means of implementation for the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and discusses building blocks of a new framework for development finance.
