Multistakeholder Dialogue on Sustainable Development Financing Organized on the margin of the World Bank and IMF Annual Meetings
The Rio+20 Summit held in June 2012 mandated an Intergovernmental Committee of experts to develop “options on an effective sustainable development strategy to facilitate the mobilization of resources and their effective use in achieving sustainable development objectives”. The report of the committee will be a key input to the intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda, set to start in September 2014.
The Rio+20 outcome document states that the process should “be conducted in open and broad consultation with relevant international and regional financial institutions and other relevant stakeholders.”
This event benefited from the presence of the Co-chairs of the Committee, Mr. Mansur Muhtar and Ambassador Pertti Majanen.
Objectives of the Dialogue:
-Inform NGOs and other Major Groups (MGs) and relevant stakeholders of the
ongoing work of the committee;
-Gather feedback and inputs from stakeholders on the strategic issues they perceive
in the field of financing for sustainable development;
-Create the conditions for ongoing dialogue and contribution of NGOs and other
MGs and relevant stakeholders to the work of the committee.
