CSO FfD Group (including Women’s Working Group on FfD) Declaration High Level Dialogue on Financing for Development (FfD)

Background
 
As the UN meets this September to discuss the climate crisis and sustainable development, it is evident that meaningful progress is only possible if world leaders commit to fix a broken global financial system. Those impacted the most by inaction as the world confronts the multiple crises at our doorsteps - financial crises,
debt crises, climate crisis, and crisis of multilateralism - are those at the bottom rung of structural inequality ladder. This is in violation of the fundamental principles of human rights, especially women’s rights and gender equality.
