Wednesday, 20 September 2023 00:00

UN General AssemblyDFI, Oxfam, NYU-CIC and UNAIDS convened an event at the United Nations General Assembly, co-sponsored by the Governments of Colombia, the Maldives, Namibia, Sierra Leone, and Zambia, and supported by a further 10 UN member states. This followed on from the meeting at Minister and Ambassador level in July. At the event, Heads of Government signed a joint statement urging the UN and the World Bank to change their monitoring to focus on genuine inequality rather than “shared prosperity”, in order for them to accelerate progress on reducing inequality in their own countries and between countries. They also agreed to continue joint work towards this goal at the forthcoming IMF and World Bank Annual Meetings in Marrakech in October, and during the review of SDG Indicators to be conducted by the Inter-Agency Expert Group in 2024.
