  • First Online:
Development Finance

Abstract

This overview chapter takes off by situating development finance within the Financing for Development (FfD) framework and its associated current action agenda, the Addis Action Agenda. The chapter then proceeds to present a brief overview of the rest of the book, clustered by some of the major themes identified in the development finance agenda, as specified by the Addis Action Agenda. For each of these themes treated, this chapter first provides a brief sketch of the key issues at play, followed by a brief presentation highlighting how the particular chapter links to these key issues; consequently, it then summarizes the key conclusions of the chapter and its main contributions and novel insights to the field.
