PSI is participating in the ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development follow-up (FfD) at the United Nations in New York (23-26 April), represented by Helene Davis-Whyte (JALGO, Jamaica) and Richard Amparbeng (PSWU, Ghana) with the support of Sandra Vermuyten, PSI Head of Campaigns.

The 2018 Forum has been conceived to assess progress, identify obstacles and challenges to the implementation of financing for development outcomes and provide policy recommendations. PSI has a range of interests in the financing for development arena, including tax, trade, anti-privatisation, climate change and sustainable development.

The delegation will also focus on the urgency of the current debt crisis, post-hurricane in the Caribbean region, the dangers of this situation leading to further defunding of public services which in turn will contribute to long-term further weakening of responsiveness of emergency services/resilience. Delegates will speak in the expert and ministerial roundtables, working in close cooperation with allies and actively participate in the Civil Society group for Financing for Development side events and many other strategy meetings.

The ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development follow-up (FfD Forum) is an intergovernmental process with universal participation mandated to review the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (Addis Agenda) and other financing for development outcomes and the means of implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The annual FfD Forum outcomes consist of inter-governmentally agreed conclusions and recommendations that are fed into the overall follow-up and review of the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the High Level Political Forum (HLPF) on Sustainable Development.
