Preparations underway for financing a sustainable future

The first session of the Preparatory Committee (PrepCom) for the Fourth International Conference on Financing for Development (FfD4) will review progress and gaps in implementing the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and identify actions to accelerate reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. 
The PrepCom session will feature a two-day ministerial segment, with a scene-setting panel to launch the preparations for the conference with a high level of political ambition. This is followed by three days of multi-stakeholder roundtables, addressing all action areas of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. These will assess progress made and spark new ideas to bridge remaining gaps in implementation. 
The meeting will take place at the Abissinia Hall of the Ethiopian Skylight Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 22 to 26 July 2024. Registration for the PrepCom is now open, and participants can access more information on registration and accreditation. An information note regarding visas, accommodation and other logistical details will be published ahead of the meeting, on the meeting website. Participants may also request to host a side event, with more information on this here.
Participation in FfD4 and its preparatory process is established by the General Assembly in its resolution 78/271 on further modalities of the Fourth International Conference on Financing for Development.
