The Economic and Social Council forum on financing for development follow-up (FfD forum) was held in New York from 18 to 20 April 2016, under the overall theme “Financing for sustainable development: follow-up to the Addis Ababa Action Agenda”. The forum resulted in intergovernmentally agreed conclusions and recommendations (included in E/FFDF/2016/3), which will be fed into the 2016 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. In addition, the President of ECOSOC issued a summary of the FfD forum (A/71/88-E/2016/68) that provided a concise overview of the substantive discussions and highlighted the salient features of the forum. In addition, the Financing for Development Office, UN-DESA has prepared a publication, which builds on the President’s summary and provides a more detailed coverage of the deliberations of the forum. It also contains a summary of side events held during the forum in a separate annex.
