As our readers are well aware, three extremely important international development policy conferences will take place during the year - in Addis Ababa, New York and in Paris. To keep our stakeholders up-to-date on the preparations for the conferences, particularly the Common African Position towards the key policy issues that underpin each conference, we have launched a dedicated portal: http://cap.africa-platform.org
The website will be updated daily with news items and resource documents relevant to the three conferences:
the Financing for Development conference, to take place in Addis Ababa
the Post-2015 Development Agenda, to take place at the United Nations
the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC, to take place in Paris.
We trust that you will find the website of much use!
