RESULTS UK Launches New Report in Addis Ababa

10 Jul 2015

RESULTS UK hosts Financing for Development event in Addis Ababa Since the start of the year we’ve been talking about the significance of 2015 for international development. In September, the Sustainable Development Goals will be launched in New York and in November, global leaders in Paris must make important decisions on how they will tackle climate change. However, the stage will be set for those two events at the third Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa which begins next week. The decisions that are taken at Addis will have a huge impact on the effectiveness (or otherwise) of the Sustainable Development Goals. Put simply, without proper financing,  the Sustainable Development Goals cannot function as they should and clearly that will impact our ability to end global poverty in the next 15 years. Steve and Laura from our Policy Team are going to be right in the middle of the action in Addis, trying to get the issues we believe in to the top of the financing agenda. We want to make sure that amidst all the technical discussions that will inevitably take place in Addis, the voices of the people that live in poverty, little or no access to healthcare, good nutrition or education are not forgotten about. On Monday, we will be launching, Who Pays for Progress? a new report from RESULTS UK and our partners and allies in ACTION. If you are in Addis for the conference, please join us and register here for the launch: Monday 13th July, 18:15 – 19:45, Jupiter Hotel Steve Lewis, Head of Policy Advocacy (steve.lewis@results.org.uk), and Laura Kerr, Policy Advocacy Coordinator (laura.kerr@results.org.uk) will be in Addis for the next week, feel free to get in touch to find out more about the event or the report!
