|Focus 2030 has produced a Special Edition to present the issues at stake at the Summit for a New Global Financing Pact, and the solutions it could bring. In this dossier, you’ll find facts and figures, infographics, expert interviews, citizen mobilization campaigns and survey results relating to the Summit.
Ahead of the Summit for a New Global Financing Pact to be held in Paris on June 22-23, ONE has initiated a campaign entitled "Time to Redefine the Rules" calling on policymakers to push for a restructuring of the international financial architecture to support the most vulnerable countries.
This campaign highlights the disproportionate impact of the crises of recent years on the most vulnerable countries, from the Covid-19 pandemic to the cascading consequences of the war in Ukraine and climate change. Low-income countries are thus particularly affected by the impacts of the current polycrisis, lacking the financial resources to address it and the means to effectively protect their populations. It is the responsibility of high-income countries, as the primary polluters, to assume their responsibilities by financially supporting the most vulnerable countries.
ONE France’s campaign aims to raise collective awareness while also calling on the French President and to all political leaders worldwide to take action.
