Millennium Campaign calls for aid accountability

Apr 22, 2009

Welcoming the outcome of the G20 summit, the United Nations Millennium Campaign has urged for restructuring the existing aid architecture. In its response to the commitments made by rich nations, the Campaign calls for reforming international financial institutions and monitoring aid delivery.

The United Nations Millennium Campaign welcomes the fact that the G-20 is taking steps to restore global growth while ensuring fiscal sustainability.

The Campaign also supports the communiqué’s clear commitment to meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the needs of the world’s poor and pledges to intensify its efforts to support citizens as they monitor the implementation of these agreements and hold G20 leaders accountable for their delivery.

It is also encouraging that the structural causes of poverty, inequality and climate injustice are also likely to be addressed, through the charter for sustainable economic activity and by reviewing the debt sustainability framework.

The G-20 recognises the human dimensions of the crisis and commits to creating employment opportunities and income support measures. However, in order to address the human dimensions of the crisis, development issues relating to all the MDGs will need to be addressed
