Asia-Pacific Outreach Meeting on Sustainable Development Financing
The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the Ministry of Finance, Republic of Indonesia will co-host a high-level Asia-Pacific Outreach Meeting on Sustainable Development Financing on 10-11 June 2014 in Jakarta.
As agreed by world leaders at Rio+20, the global development agenda is expanding beyond poverty reduction and the MDGs, incorporating issues such as infrastructure, social development, as well as climate change mitigation and adaptation, for which it is critical to secure new and innovative sources of finance.
The meeting will bring together leading figures from the public, private and civil society sectors from more than 30 countries to share their views on a financing strategy for achieving sustainable development in the region. It will also feed into the on-going outreach by the UN Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing, who will report to the UN General Assembly on sustainable financing options and proposals.
