The CS FfD Group is pleased to launch the Private Finance thematic Briefing!
This briefing on Private Business and Finance is part of a broader toolkit introducing the FfD process and the Civil Society FfD Group’s role in it, built to make navigating the FfD process and its interrelated domains more accessible for a non-technical audience.
In this briefing we critically address an overreliance on private finance and business and a focus on policies aimed at attracting more private investments as key strategies to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agreed in 2015. We then highlight how shaping decision-making on global economic governance at the UN has the potential to unlock the current barriers to mobilizing public resources for development and support a transition towards more sustainable and diverse economies.
