The Role of Data Standards and International Initiatives in Mobilizing and Monitoring Financing for Development Commitments

In order to achieve the ambitions of the Financing for Development and post-2015 agendas, it will be necessary to harness all of the available financial resources for sustainable development. Better data on all development finance flows are essential in order to build a complete and timely picture of the resources available.

The event will be moderated by Ms. Judith Randel, Executive Director, Development Initiatives
