Dear Invitees:

The Financing for Development Office of the United Nations Department of
Economic and Social Affairs and the Private Sector Development Program
of the World Bank Institute are organizing a two-week Global
e-Conference on Implementing the Monterrey Consensus: Governance Roles
of Public, Private and Advocacy Stakeholders from September 29 to
October 10, 2003.  The main objective of this online dialogue is to
provide an opportunity for participants from around the world to share
their expertise and ideas on the Monterrey Consensus and the
implementation process and to provide these views to the official
international community. That is, a summary of the e-conference will be
provided as an input to the first global follow up the International
Conference on Financing for Development held in Monterrey, Mexico in

The global follow up will take the form of a High-Level Dialogue (HLD)
on Financing for Development in the United Nations General Assembly New
York, 29 - 30 October 2003. The HLD includes a day of quadripartite
round tables (governments, international institutions, business and
civil society), and a day with an innovative open dialogue for all major
stakeholders in the General Assembly.  The HLD will be preceded by a
half-day consultation with civil society and half day consultation with
the private sector. After the Dialogue, governments will seek to agree
in the Assembly on new implementation steps to better realize the
promises of Monterrey.

The e-Conference is structured around two general topics.  Week 1 (Sept.
29-Oct. 3) will focus on the future of the Monterrey Consensus and the
progress that has been made thus far.  Week 2 (Oct. 6-10) will focus on
issues of global economic governance and the role of public, private and
advocacy stakeholders, including opportunities for public-private
