Given the changing nature of development finance in the international sphere, the Sustainable Development Goals International Conference was put together in order to shape the global priorities for economic, environmental and social development to meet the challenges of a new era.

The conference held on March 17-18, 2015 in Accra, Ghana and was organised by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) and a global coalition of partners, including United Nations Development Program (UNDP), Development Finance International (DFI), Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF) , African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) and Development Initiatives (DI).

The theme of the conference 'Financing the Future: Fresh Perspectives on Global Development' explored how international public finance can best contribute to accelerating progress in development from 2015. Dr. Ebere Uneze joined other high-level speakers from around the world to discuss and identify core issues of financing for development.
