To promote prosperity and well-being, we need to invest in people and planet. The Addis Ababa Action Agenda, which was adopted in the Ethiopian capital last summer at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development, provides a new global framework for financing people-centred sustainable development.

The ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development on 18-20 April is the first event to follow up on the promises made in the Addis Agenda.

Whether it is income, wealth, gender, health, education or innovation; there are many faces to inequality around the globe. Did you for example know that the average income of the richest 10% of the population is about nine times that of the poorest 10% across the OECD?

Less inequality benefits us all. This is why the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development places such importance on its reduction in its standalone sustainable development goal 10. This is also why the ECOSOC President has decided to convene a special meeting on this topic today. #SDGs #GlobalGoals

This is what the meeting hopes to achieve: http://bit.ly/1UHnV3X
