The UN General Assembly will hold its first High-level Dialogue on Financing for Development (FfD) as a sideline event of its 74th session. The Dialogue will aim to renew global commitment to financing at the highest political level. It will serve as a UN call for collective action to energize growth and tackle challenges in the global economy, encourage public and private investment to align with the 2030 Agenda, and promote new and innovative initiatives that target gaps in financing sustainable development.
The FfD meeting is mandated in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, which calls for it to convene back-to-back with the UN General Assembly's High Level Political Forum meeting every four years. About 80 Heads of State and Members of Government are expected to participate this year in dicussing ways to improve FfD.
