Women’s Group alarmed by FfD Plans

Women’s Group Alarmed by Financing for Development Plans
Call on governments to adopt strong political declaration rooted in human rights

“The Women’s Major Group, representing more than 600 women’s groups from over 100 countries, is deeply disappointed with the outcome of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, last week. What came out of the conference, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, is the world’s plan for implementing and financing global development. While the Action Agenda is being heralded by many governments as a strong outcome for women and girls, it fails to address profound inequalities in economic policies and institutions that undermine human rights and gender equality”
