Hvordan skal den næste udviklingsdagsorden finansieres?


Who and how to finance the post-2015 sustainable development agenda?

Following the most comprehensive global consultation process ever undertaken by the UN system on the priorities for the next development agenda, attention is now shifting to the critical issue of means of implementation. Financing for development is of course central to this discussion.

Domestic revenue mobilization is likely to be placed in front of this discussion. At the same time, it will be necessary to address the increasing complexity of the development financing landscape. Over the past decade, there has been a proliferation of development players, fund and financing instruments, which has led to a complex and uncoordinated (non)-system for development financing. In the post-2015 period, there will be a need to reduce the number of interfaces governments have to deal with to ensure efficiency and to maximize existing funding sources and new opportunities for sustainable development.

Yannick Glemarec, Head of UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office, and former Executive Coordinator of the UN Global Environment Facility (GEF), will share the current thinking on financing for development in the on-going work of the Expert Group on Financing and in the UN Task Team on post-2015.

Friday 28 February 2014, 2:30-4:00 PM
