On 4-6 November 2019, the UNCTAD Intergovernmental Group of Experts on Financing for Development met in Geneva to continue discussions on the issues, concerns and challenges raised in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. In advance of the meeting, Eurodad made the following submission, concerning:
How can the commitment by the Addis Ababa Action Agenda to reverse recent declines in official development assistance be met and how can official development assistance play a more effective role in efforts to scale up development finance required to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals?
How can the quality and impact of both concessional and non-concessional official flows be improved and coordinated to support these efforts, including through innovative financing models and tools?
What institutional, policy and regulatory changes at the international level will be helpful to ensure that global economic governance appropriately supports effective international development cooperation, to facilitate domestic public resource mobilisation?
