The inaugural session of the Forum on Financing for Development follow-up (FfD Forum) organized by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) has been convened to monitor commitments and actions taken on the Addis Ababa Action Agenda.
The forum, which has been tagged: ‘Financing for sustainable development: follow-up to the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA),’ will discuss issues pertaining to the follow-up to the Third International Conference on Financing for Development (FfD3), and the implementation of its outcome, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA).
Top on the forum’s agenda will be the special high-level meeting with the Bretton Woods Institutions, the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), as well as additional institutions and other stakeholders. The inter-governmentally agreed conclusions and recommendations of the Forum will be fed into the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF).
The deliberations of ECOSOC’s Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) will also be taken into account at the forum.
