This paper examines financing for development trends, actors and policies since the 2002 Monterrey Conference and the new role acquired by the South-South dimension. In particular, we highlight the changing role of South-South cooperation, to reflect tectonic shifts in the global economy and as reflected in the new discourse on global development that has emerged since the 2011 Busan High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness and the 2012 Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development. We complement the analysis of major policy statements and the application of relevant principles with a case study on how the different geographical (North-South, South-South, triangular) and functional (ODA, FDI, trade, remittances, etc.) dimensions of development finance are playing out in Myanmar, arguably the last country to open up to political and economic liberalization.
