Ideas to Action:

Independent research for global prosperity

Impacts and Influence

Financing for Development

Charles Kenny’s and other CGD researchers’ proposals regarding draft agreements for the 2015 Addis Ababa Financing for Development Conference were taken on board by several member state negotiating teams. While ultimately not adopted, language in drafts had moved toward CGD-suggested text in the areas of tax, tobacco, and the global social floor.

CGD work by Casey Dunning also provided suggestions for US government deliverables on domestic revenue mobilization as put forward in the Addis Tax Initiative.
