ESCWA’s work on financing for development aims to make member countries more attractive for domestic, intraregional and international investment, to mobilize much needed domestic and international resources, and to support member countries in their debt management. Through analytical studies, expert group meetings, training workshops and seminars, it helps member countries to implement the recommendations of the Monterrey Consensus and Doha Declaration on Financing for Development, and will assist with implementation of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. It also provides technical assistance, especially on issues related to investment agreements, tax efficiency, workers’ remittances, financial inclusion and debt management.
