Global Voices bloggers have been commissioned to liveblog the OECD Global Forum on Development  in Paris on April 4-5, 2013. Leading up to the meeting, our team is submitting posts about development issues that help serve as weekly online discussion topics  on their website.
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)  is an international economic organisation of 34 countries that supports democracy and world trade. The Global Forum on Development is focussed on poverty reduction and social cohesion  and attracts a wide range of participants from governments and civil society to help discuss solutions.
The hashtag for the meeting is #OECDgfd .
