The Financing for Development Office in its multi-stakeholder approach is dedicated to support and facilitate the participation of all stakeholders in the Financing for Development process, including civil society. Non-governmental organizations have been involved from the outset in the Financing for Development process by providing important inputs, expertise and proposals to the International Conference on Financing for Development. Moreover, with their diverse voices and priorities, they are instrumental in the follow-up process to Monterrey. This view has been endorsed at the highest level in the Monterrey Consensus itself, which in paragraph 69 calls for civil society to stay involved and actively engaged in the process. Civil society has made extensive contributions to the Financing for Development process through intergovernmental events, workshops and multi-stakeholder consultations.
