Last 17-18 March, the Development Progress Program at ODI held the ‘Financing the Future: Fresh perspectives on global development' conference at Accra, Ghana. At this event, ODI gathered policy makers, researchers and NGOs to discuss a key question:
What challenges and opportunities to meet the SDGs offers the changing landscape of development finance?
The event aimed at identifying specific contributions to the financing for development (FfD) process and at influencing decision-makers ahead of the Addis Ababa conference on Financing for Development that will take place in July 2015.
Chiara Mariotti, CPAN Research Officer, contributed the conference adding a chronic poverty perspective to the discussion by focusing on how development finance can contribute to the effort to “get to zero” poverty and to the “leave no one behind” agenda.
