Latest developments at the UN:
New agreed text for the UN Conference on the Financial and Economic Crisis and its Impact on Development held June 24 - 26th
After months of negotiations, the United Nations Conference on the Financial and Economic Crisis and its Impact on Development closes today, June 26th, 2009. Civil society organizations are seriously disappointed in the result of the Conference and the official outcome document. In no way do the results of the Conference measure up to the actions needed to address the scale and depth of the economic meltdown, most evident in the jobs crisis, particularly in developing countries.
