Towards a Monterrey ‘Plus’ Outcome
The 2002 Monterrey Consensus on Financing for Development (FfD) was the first major international agreement to focus attention on development financing issues, with the Millennium Summit and agreement on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) providing the backdrop. Monterrey included commitments on aid, but also a number of other issues being emphasised in the post-2015 financing agenda.

There is growing interest in food consumption and its links to urbanisation but the views of the real experts, the urban poor, do not get the attention they deserve. IIED and the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights are asking poor women in cities in Cambodia and Nepal about the challenges of putting food on the table.
