FfD Forum Should Ensure Countries Deliver On Global Commitments, ONE Policy Manager Suggests

ONE Blog: What the Financing for Development Forum was missing
Kerezhi Sebany, policy manager for multilateral institutions at ONE, discusses the ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development Follow-up (FfD Forum) and notes, “[T]he Forum is void of any measures to make sure countries deliver on their commitments. … If we are going to end poverty, bold leadership is critical to overcoming short-term political calculations and myopic policies. The FfD Forum should be more than a talking shop and needs to focus on and propose actionable steps to tackle bottlenecks” (5/17).
