3GF works in a cyclical process closely aligned with the proposed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and climate targets. The current 3GF cycle runs from 2015 until the global summit, which will take place in Copenhagen 6-7 June 2016.
As preparation for the summit 3GF has co-hosted a number of regional meeting and activities in the African, Asian and Latin American regions. A preparatory meeting focusing on leveraging, exposing and probing the partnerships before the Summit in 2016 will take place in Copenhagen 20-21 October 2015.
3GF follows closely the Financing for Development meeting taking place in Addis Ababa 13-16 July, the UN Summit to adopt the post-2015 agenda taking place in New York 25-27 September and finally the UNFCCC COP21 taking place in Paris 30 Nov-11 Dec 2015.
