The Women’s Working Group on Financing for Development (WWG on FfD) was formed in October 2007 as an alliance of women’s organizations and networks that actively advocated for the advancement of gender equality, women’s empowerment and human rights in the Financing for Development (FfD) related UN processes.

The III UN Financing for Development Conference will take place in July 2015 in Addis Ababa, contributing to the need to revitalize the WWG on FfD. In this context, the WWG on FfD will be an extensive arena for networking, strategizing and alliance building on FfD related issues, bringing a feminist and women’s rights perspective to the discussions and deliberations ahead of the III International Conference on FfD.
