The Third International Conference on Financing for Development will take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia between 13 and 16 July 2015. At the conference, high-level political representatives will adopt an international agreement setting out how the post-2015 sustainable development agenda will be financed.
UNDP believes the conference presents an important opportunity for the international community to adopt a financing framework every bit as bold and ambitious as the new Sustainable Development Goals.
UNDP has a large portfolio of work on financing for development (FfD). UNDP’s work on FfD ranges from supporting countries to access and programme environmental finance, to working with aid providers and recipients to exchange knowledge and make development cooperation more effective, to carrying out research and policy advice on debt sustainability, to maximizing the potential of private finance.
