Financing for Development

The General Assembly decided that the Follow-up International Conference on Financing for Development to Review the Implementation of the Monterrey Consensus will be held in Doha, Qatar, in the second half of 2008. The Follow-up Conference is particularly important as we have now passed the mid-point to achieve the Millennium Development Goals in 2015.

The review conference will address progress made, reaffirm goals and commitments, share best practices and lessons learned. The conference should also identify obstacles and constraints encountered, actions and initiatives to overcome them and important measures for further implementation, as well as new challenges and emerging issues, such as adapting to climate change.

The General Assembly held its third High-level Dialogue on Financing for Development on the overall theme "The Monterrey Consensus: status of implementation and tasks ahead" on 23-24 October 2007. The Dialogue provided a substantive contribution to the preparation of the Doha conference.
