17-18 March - Financing the Future: Fresh Perspectives on Global Development

Friday, 27 March 2015 00:00

ODI LogoDFI helped convene an international conference in Accra, Ghana, looking at how development finance can meet the challenges of the new era given its changing nature and the proliferation of new sources. Opened by H.E. Seth Terkper, Ghana’s Minister of Finance, and organised by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and a coalition of global partners, the event aimed at updating participants on key debates and policy processes related to financing the SDGs, providing an overview of recent and likely future trends in the purpose, use and impact of international public finance, and at providing alternative perspectives on international public finance and its use.

DFI facilitated a role-play session on “Adapting financing plans to positive and negative country level shocks” in which representatives from developing countries shared their experience around the difficulties they encounter in terms of resource mobilisation to finance their development. They also debated on possible solutions to overcome these obstacles.
