U.S. priorities for the Addis Ababa Conference on Financing for Development

2015 is a transformational year for development assistance. In July, a conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia will be the international community’s best opportunity to lay the foundation for development financing for decades to come. Then, in September, the U.N. General Assembly will address a new set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that will set an ambitious development agenda to harness public, private, and domestic resources.

On June 15, Brookings was joined by the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network (MFAN) to host a discussion on U.S. priorities for the Addis financing for development conference. Two panels featured U.S. officials and civil society leaders to discuss how open data and domestic resource mobilization will intersect with future development efforts and the financing behind them.
