Where’s the dough???

Government should commit to accountability when ensuring the Global Financing Facility, directs funds appropriately.

Another May long weekend to enjoy family and friends, camping and  parties, gardening and puttering.

The promise of summer is around the corner.

Now we enjoy the long languishing light, as we approach the longest day of the entire year.

Ahhhh that’s the life!

Not so for too many people around the globe!

As we approach the Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia in July 2015, Canada can play a key role in ensuring that the Global Financing Facility, which will be housed at the World Bank, is both effective at leveraging funds and ensuring that those funds reach those who need them most.

In the coming months, while Canada negotiates the structure and priorities of the GFF, we must urge the government to commit to accountability. We must ensure the preservation of equity, innovative and sustainable financing!
