Join the Civil Society FfD Group
By filling this form, you express your interest to join the Civil Society Financing for Development (FfD) Group and therefore be included in its Global Social Economy list (GoogleGroup). The form will require applicants to provide some basic information to confirm their status as representatives of public-benefit civil society organizations.

The Civil Society Financing for Development (FfD) Group is an open mechanism with the single criterion for participation being representation of a public-benefit civil society organization. The CS FfD Group includes the Women’s Working Group on FfD. The Group has a fundamentally thematic focus, bringing together civil society organizations, networks, federations and social movements that are interested and active in the Financing for Development Process and its interrelated domains. In various conformations, the CS FfD Group’s engagement dates back to the Preparatory Committee process leading up to the first International Conference on Financing for Development in Monterrey (March 2002), and then continues through the preparation and follow-up of the Financing for Development Conference in Doha (November 2008) and the Third Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa (July 2015). In particular, the Group has been active in its present format (Global Social Economy) since the Doha FfD Review Conference in 2008.

During the entire FfD process, the CS FfD Group promoted, catalysed and facilitated engagement of civil society in the formal UN process and related spaces. Consistently with the FfD modalities that explicitly provide for the participation of civil society and the private sector, the CS FfD Group is officially acknowledged by the UN FfD Office as the mechanism for civil society engagement in the process and so referred on the UN FfD website. As per paragraph 132 of the outcome document of the Third Financing for Development Conference, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, the CS FfD group understands its mandate to not only address the expanded Financing for Development agenda but also the interlinkages between Financing for Development and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The core of the Group is an open virtual list called Global Social Economy (GSEG). As a mechanism for civil society’s engagement in FfD, the CS FfD Group does not have “formal membership”, but it rather is an open space where interested organizations can engage and coordinate their common action, advocacy and engagement.

Welcome on board! FfDly yours,

The Addis Ababa Civil Society Coordinating Group
