A successful outcome of the Addis Ababa Conference on Financing for Development (FfD) will become the linchpin for the adoption and subsequent implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) following the September Summit at the United Nations in New York as well as the climate agreement under the UN Framework Convention for Climate Change (UNFCCC) in Paris in December.

This issue brief outlines six practical initiatives which would help to ensure that the Addis FfD conference is a great success. We recognize that there is not sufficient time to elaborate and launch many of these proposals by the time of Addis, yet we believe that the world community could commit to important initiatives such as these in Addis, to be followed by subsequent elaboration and launch at a later date.
