UN Special Rapporteur Maina Kiai calls upon international financial institutions to counter the global trend of closing civil society space by promoting more community participation in their activities.His call comes roughly one year since the United Nations set the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an ambitious blueprint for governments and financiers to use their political power and resources to end poverty, hunger, and disease. Kiai notes in the op-ed that while development banks play a key role in ensuring the success of the SDGs, they cannot do it alone. More information is available here.
