The Coffers Are Not Empty: Financing for Sustainable Development and the Role of the UN
Global Policy Forum | July 1, 1998By Jens Martens and James A. Paul
Financial issues have been at the centre of the North-South debate since the 1960s. During intergovernmental negotiations of recent decades, especially the world conferences from Rio 1992 to Rome 1996, the sharpest controversies between North and South have taken place over "means of implementation" - that is, money to finance the agreed programs of action. The conferences failed to accomplish their goals largely because governments of the North were unwilling to provide the essential financial means.
