    address the broader development community to make the case for investment

    Does "address the broader development community to make the case for investment " mean "speak to larger groups to seek for investment"?
    --------------------
    Mental health does not lack political support. This month, the World Bank and the World Health Organization (WHO) will together address the broader development community to make the case for investment in mental health. In the past three years, the importance of mental health has been highlighted by the WHO, in its Mental Health Action Plan for 201320; by leaders of countries in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC); and by the health ministers of the Commonwealth nations. In September 2015, mental health was incorporated into the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

    Re: address the broader development community to make the case for investment

    I got this:
    The United Nations defines community development as "a process where community members come together to take collective action and generate solutions to common problems."
    So the question has been basically resolved.
    The remaining question is: Does "make the case" mean "take action" and "address" mean "speak to"?
