Policy Analyst at the Integrated Social Development Centre (ISODEC,) Mr. Bernard Anaba, has affirmed that the time has come for leaders of Ghana and the rest of the world to put in place measures to tackle poverty, inequality and climate change.
Mr. Anaba observed with concern that the global financial system fails developing countries most, adding that for every $1 gained, $2 is lost, stressing the need for the leaders of the world to step up and show that they are committed to fighting poverty and climate change.
with two historic summits within three months of each other in 2015–one in September on development to usher in the post 2015 AGENDA, one in December on climate change – we have a unique opportunity to change the world for the better, Mr. Anaba stated in a statement signed and issued by him and in Accra.
He noted that these summits are opportunities for world leaders to be committed for people and the planet.
“We are working under the Action/2015 banner to ensure they live up to the challenge which is finance,” he added.
According to him, words alone will not make these commitments a reality stating that it will take money and political will to deliver, adding that financing for development summit and third crucial summit taking place in July this year in Ethiopia is the place to be.
He indicated that the Financing for Development conference is “our chance to turn the ambitious development goals and climate agreements currently being discussed at the United Union (UN) into reality.”
