Addis Ababa Agreement Financing For Development

On the basis of the Monterrey Consensus (2002) and the Doha Declaration (2008), the Addis Ababa Conference on Financing for Development resulted in an intergovernmental agreement that is expected to constitute and support an important contribution to the implementation of the post-2015 development agenda. While in the last ten years, much has been done in terms of gender equality. B, such as primary school enrolment and access to health care for women and girls, still needs to be done. There are significant differences in pay for equal work, women remain under-represented in government and violence against women remains unacceptable. The action programme incorporates gender-based consideration into all its chapters. He stresses that women`s empowerment can make an important contribution to economic development for all. To this end, it requires countries to implement laws and administrative reforms to give women equal rights, including by encouraging budgeting and the pursuit of gender equality.

A new mechanism has also been adopted to facilitate the financing of new technologies for developing countries. The FSDO also supports the UN Committee of Experts on International Tax Cooperation (UNITED Nations Tax Committee) and disseminates the Committee`s guidelines through a capacity development programme aimed at strengthening the capacity of developing countries to develop more efficient and efficient tax systems, with the ultimate goal of increasing the mobilization of resources for investment in sustainable development. The action programme recognizes that the technology division into a wide range of economic sectors makes it more difficult for developing countries to achieve sustainable development. In order to facilitate the development, transfer and dissemination of technologies useful for achieving the SDGs on mutually agreed terms, Member States agree to establish a technology facilitation mechanism, consisting of a UN inter-agency team, an annual collaborative multi-party forum on science, technology and innovation for the SDGs and an online platform.
