The Women’s Working Group on Financing for Development (WWG on FfD) of which WIDE+ is a member, has reviewed the paper for the new Aid Effectiveness Agenda that will be decided upon in Addis Ababa, in July of this year.

The Women’s Major Group acknowledges the Co-facilitators proposed “Elements Paper for Declaration Discussion”, but feels the content and structure need a stronger focus on the Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, the declaration must prioritize human rights, gender equality and the full realization of women’s and girl’s human rights, ending inequalities, and achieving environmental sustainability, peaceful societies, accountability and justice through a profound transformation of the current neoliberal economic model of development.
