An Introductory Guide to Financing for Development

This document was developed based on collective work by the Civil Society FfD (Financing for Development) Mechanism. It is an introductory briefing of the FfD process and of the Civil Society FfD Mechanism’s role in it and it is the first part of a more comprehensive toolkit currently under development, being built as an attempt to make navigating the FfD process and its interrelated domains more accessible for a non-technical audience. By guiding readers through the UN Financing for Development world, it shines a light onto how shaping decision-making on global economic governance at the UN has the potential to transform our global economic systems to reduce inequalities within and between countries and make them work for people and the planet.
