Third International Conference on Financing for Development

Monday, 13/07/2015

The Third International Conference on Financing for Development is to be held from 13 to 16 July 2015 in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia).The results of this conference will set the Post-2015 Agenda and the Climate Agenda. UCLG is undertaking the task for representing the voice of local and regional governments in the working process of the Local Financing for Development Committee.

The issue of financing is crucial to local and regional governments, who for many years have been committed to decentralised cooperation and discussions on official development aid (ODA), with the aim of ensuring the capacity to implement their responsibilities, as defined in the sustainable development agenda. For this reason, sub-national levels represent a dimension of financial sustainability that needs to be included in the Addis Ababa discussions.
