Organized as part of the Spring Meetings Civil Society Policy Forum
Friday, April 15, 2011, 2- 3:30 p.m., Room MC C1-200, World Bank, Washington, DC
The FSB is the lead organization responsible for global financial regulations, which affect virtually every aspect of global development. The FSB is little understood, but it is essential for CSOs to learn more about it and target their advocacy strategies around FSB actions.
This Workshop discussed:
what the FSB is (How it Works; Agenda);
how it relates to CSOs development agendas (commodity prices, such as food and agriculture; tax havens and illicit finance; sovereign debts;
opportunities for advocacy.
