Regards Lilly Evans Strategic Learning Web UK -------------------------------------- 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 2002. 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 partnerships. We are pleased to invite you to participate in this e-conference. You could read the messages posted in this e-conference, and if you have expertise in a particular topic, we would encourage you to contribute to the discussion.
