On 29-30 May, the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation, together with the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (ECOSOC), organised a high-level meeting outside New York on the subject of UN reform. The meeting marked the culmination of the first phase of an intensive dialogue process among the UN member states and the UN development system on the future of the UN development system in light of the imminent post-2015 development agenda.
This Development Dialogue paper draws attention to three key emerging and evolving financing trends that are of particular relevance to the UNDS: the growth of issue-based multi-agency pooled financing; the challenge of leveraging official development assistance (ODA); and the role of innovative finance.
“Financing the UN Development System: Getting it Right for a Post-2015 World”, jointly prepared by the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and the UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office, underlines that the new development agenda will require not only additional resources but also the use of a wider range of financing instruments and mechanisms to meet the challenges of an ambitious set of universal sustainable development goals (SDGs).
It’s our pleasure to introduce you to the report – Financing the UN Development System: Getting it right for a post-2015 world – produced by The Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and the UNDP Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office.
