The CSO FfD Forum will take place in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, on July 11-12, 2015, and will be se-organized by the CSO FfD Group. An opening reception will take place on the evening of July 10, 2015. The objectives of the CSO Forum are the following:
- To inform participating CSOs on the state of play of the official process and coordinate civil society participation to the Third FfD Conference;
- To develop a collective CSO Forum Declaration as well as the CSO messages for the FfD Conference Roundtables, the CSO FfD Group-led side events and any other opportunities that might emerge;
- To plan and organize future areas of CSO engagement on Financing for Development, beyond the Third FfD Conference.
The CSO FfD Group established a working group to elaborate the preliminary agenda of the CSO Forum. An initial draft will be made available at the beginning of June. More information on venue and the programme will be sent to you as soon as possible. The Addis Ababa CSO Coordinating Group is working hard to secure financial resources that would cover the cost of the Forum and enable the participation of organisations for whom financial resources will be an obstacle to participate in the Forum. In the extreme event that we are unable to secure sufficient financial support from donors, we may consider setting a “progressive” participation fee to be applied to different categories of organizations to cover the costs of organising the forum.
