This high-level side event on the UN General Assembly sought to:
To raise awareness of key challenges to domestic resource mobilisation in developing countries, and build political support for a forward-looking agenda for international co-operation to strengthen developing countries’ efforts in this area;
Engage a broad range of stakeholders in a debate on how better co-operation for domestic resource mobilisation might feature as part of the post-2015 United Nations development agenda; and
Set the scene for inclusive and action-oriented discussions on this topic. The interactive panel discussion also afforded participants the opportunity to contribute ideas and help shape debate in the lead up to the first Global Partnership ministerial level meeting in Mexico early 2014.
