The ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development follow-up (FfD Forum) is an annual platform to promote consensus among key stakeholders on financing for sustainable development. Over the course of the Forum’s four days of nearly 50 different panel discussions and side events, representatives from governments, financial institutions, civil society and the private sector will engage in dialogue on key trends and best practices that impact sustainable finance. These include climate change, inequalities and disruptive technologies. The resulting inter-governmental, agreed conclusions and recommendations are then embodied in an outcome document presented on Forum’s final day.

As part of this year’s Forum, the SDG Investment Fair will run from 15 to 17 April and offer a number of sessions to highlight the importance of national investment plans and projects designed to close the SDG investment gap, including opportunities to mobilize long-term investments for sustainable infrastructure, access capital and invest in projects to strengthen the social sector and promote investment in line with the SDGs.

This year’s Forum will pave the way for the High-level Dialogue on Financing for Development in September 2019 that follows the SDG Summit. This year also marks the end of the first four-year cycle of implementation efforts on the SDGs and Addis Ababa Action Agenda. The 2019 Forum is at the center of the Financing for Development follow-up process and is designed to:

1) review the implementation of the Addis Agenda; and

2) forge consensus among diverse stakeholders and spread policy expertise to advance implementation against rising economic and non-economic risks.
