Zero Draft of the Outcome Document of the Third Financing for Development Conference
The draft outcome document is intended to provide a holistic and forward-looking framework and concrete actions for the financing of sustainable development in order to deliver the means of implementation for the ambitious and transformative development agenda.
The draft aims to be comprehensive and balanced, building on the work of the preparatory process to date, including the substantive informal sessions in November and December; the elements considered at the First Drafting Session in January and the wide range of inputs submitted by Member States and other stakeholders. It also takes into full account the Report of the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals; Report of the Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing (ICESDF), and the Synthesis Report of the Secretary General.
As outlined in the Roadmap, the upcoming Drafting Session from 13-17 April will mark the intensification of negotiations and provide the opportunity to hear concrete reactions to the draft text.
