Jean Mensa, Maam Suwadu Sakho-Jimbira and Ebere Uneze join “Financing the Future: Fresh Perspectives on Global Development” at Accra, Ghana

SV members participated in the international conference on Financing the Future: Fresh Perspectives on Global Development, held on 17–18 March 2015 at La Palm Royal Beach Hotel in Accra, Ghana. ODI and a global coalition of partners, including UNDP, CEPEI, ACET, CABRI, ESRF, DFI and the Brookings Institute hosted the conference.

High-level presenters from different parts of the world flocked to Ghana to join the event, which acted as a platform for discoursing on the recent and continued challenges facing middle–income countries. The two-day conference explored how international public finance can most effectively help to catalyse progress in development from 2015 – identifying specific contributions to the Financing for Development process and influencing key decision-makers before the third International Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in July.

Among the SV members, Ebere Uneze participated actively in the interactive “Speed-geeking” session: What should go into the FfD agreement? which was facilitated by Gideon Rabinowitz, ODI. Jean Mensa, Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) – Ghana, and Maam Suwadu Sakho-Jimbira, Initiative Prospective Agricole et Rurale (IPAR) – Senegal, were among the other SV members who attended the event.
