New York, NY – The World Federation of United Nations Associations (WFUNA) has received a $150,000 grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation (the “Foundation”) for a coalition promoting accountable governance in the post-2015 development agenda.
Over the course of thirteen months during the final negotiations phase of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the grant will support united advocacy efforts to ensure that transparency and accountability are at the core of the agenda. WFUNA will be the host organization for the coalition and will house a Coordinator and Deputy Coordinator to carry out the coalition’s activities.
The coalition includes, among others, Transparency International, the International Budget Partnership, CAFOD, Save the Children, Integrity Action, The Ploughshare Group, Development Initiatives, Publish What You Fund, Global Witness, United Nations Association of the USA, and Plan International.
