RightingFinance issues human rights audit of Committee on Financing Sustainable Development’s report

RightingFinance has released a human rights audit of the report by the UN Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing. In their assessment, members of the Initiative said that the centrality of human rights and equality should not only permeate the new development goals agreed in 2015, but also the full range of means to finance them.

The Committee, comprising 30 experts nominated by regional groups, was created by the UN the General Assembly pursuant to one of the agreements in the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The Committee had the mandate to assess financing needs, consider the effectiveness, consistency and synergies of existing instruments and frameworks, and evaluate additional initiatives, with a view to preparing a report proposing options on an effective sustainable development financing strategy to facilitate the mobilization of resources and their effective use in achieving sustainable development objectives.

Last August, it delivered its report, which will be an important input into the intergovernmental deliberations that will decide on means of financing the Sustainable Development Goals.
