I was part of the World Resources Institute delegation in Addis Ababa for Financing for Development 2016. This photo captures the theme of the event well.

This is because the existing $135bn of annual ODA is not enough to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
I was pleased that the event published my blog submission on Financing FLR
