First Session of FfD4 Preparatory Committee

The first session of the Preparatory Committee for the Fourth International Conference on Financing for Development (FfD) will continue to make the organizational, procedural, and substantive preparations for the Conference. This session follows a one-day organizational session that convened in February 2024 at UN Headquarters in New York, US.

The Fourth International Conference on Financing for Development (FfD) will take place from 30 June to 3 July 2025 in Spain. The Conference will result both in an intergovernmentally negotiated and agreed outcome and in summaries of the plenary meetings and other deliberations of the Conference, to be included in the report of the Conference. The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), through its Financing for Sustainable Development Office, and the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) will support the Conference and its preparatory process. 

Permanent Representative of Burundi Zéphyrin Maniratanga and Permanent Representative of Portugal Ana Paula Zacarias will co-chair the Committee. The Vice-Chairs of the Preparatory Committee are South Africa, Zambia, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan, Poland, the Russian Federation, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Canada, and Norway. China will serve as a Vice-Chair on a rotational basis with the other elected Asia-Pacific States.

The Preparatory Committee will hold two meetings in 2024 and a third session in February 2025. The Committee will also convene a one-day stakeholder hearing in October 2024.
