The participants of the Plenary session have noted high value and relevance of the Draft of CWAP in particular that the Document has been achieved on a democratic basis. Li Young, on behalf of UNIDO, has expressed full readiness to assist further development of WAP with the maximum inclusion of scientific analytical resources. Bindu Lohani, on behalf of the Board of Governors of ADB, has expressed the highest degree of support of the Draft of CWAP and has also highlighted its relevance and necessity of the adoption of this document for the global community.
UN discussions on financial and economic crisis and an outline on the development of proposals to combat long-term consequences of the global financial and economic crisis have been continuing during 2014 and 2014. As a result, discussions and outcomes of more than 40 outreach events held across the globe as well as experts’ work from more than 170 countries at communication online platform G-Global (group-global.org) developed in a special contribution to the Draft of CWAP.
The document is a systemic plan on fundamental challenges of the global economy. In other words, a map of currently relevant global challenges with general recommendations has been developed. Taking into account that the Draft of CWAP is devoted to macroeconomic challenges of the global economy including international social and financial economic problems, in a short-term it will contribute to the generation of recommendations for the UN agenda in the field of Post-2015 development, the Australian and Turkish Chairmanship in G20.
Final point in this large-scale expert painstaking work will be delivered at the end of II World Anti-Crisis Conference (WAC) held under the UN General Assembly support on May 21st-23rd 2014 in Astana city.
Henceforth, it is planned to transfer the Draft of CWAP to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and to other international organizations for further development.
