The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation: Where do we stand?

Event Type
Informal Discussion

Berlin, 28.05.2017

German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik

The second High-level Meeting (HLM2) of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC) in Nairobi in December 2016 produced the Nairobi Outcome Document that reaffirmed commitments to the four partnership principles - ownership, focus on results, inclusiveness, transparency and accountability. It also set the GPEDC on the path of (re-)defining its mandate and role in the 2030 Agenda and drafting a new work programme (2017-2018).

However, there is still little progress in convincing important stakeholders – in particular emerging economies such as Brazil, China, India and South Africa, but also the private sector - to participate in the GPEDC. An open dialogue with abstaining stakeholders about their perceptions and positions vis-à-vis the GPEDC is needed. Especially think tank representatives and researchers are in a suitable position to debate pending matters by taking into account, but not being restrained by, official political considerations.

DIE jointly with partners from the Managing Global Governance (MGG) network and additional partners discussed the global aid architecture over the last years in many formats. In the context of the HLM2 meeting in Nairobi and the T20 Africa conference in Johannesburg in early 2017, we already held joint brainstorming discussions. Based on those results we intend to continue our debates.
