Publication: FES Perspective – “The Contribution of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda to Agenda 2030: Toward a new era of international cooperation” by Jose Antonio Ocampo

The 2016 Financing for Development Forum faces a huge challenge to forge coherence among three flagship development agreements from 2015: the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, Agenda 2030 and the Paris Climate Change Agreement. To move these interdependent processes forward, international cooperation is needed in 1) tax evasion and avoidance, 2) countercyclical financing for the system of development banks, 3) more fair and democratic bilateral and mega-regional trade and investment agreements, and 4) systemic issues and debt. In this new publication, noted Columbia University economist José Antonio Ocampo argues that only a new era of international cooperation can adequately address these challenges.
