The Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation: New Frontiers
The Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC) is an important platform for discussions on the effectiveness of contributions towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Since its last High-level Meeting in Nairobi in December 2016, the GPEDC is re-positioning itself to more effectively contribute to implementation of the SDGs and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. The GPEDC principles of country ownership, focus on results, transparency, inclusive partnerships and mutual accountability guide the transition period.
At the Nairobi meeting in December 2016, Germany assumed the role of one of the three co-chairs of the Partnership and will therefore have a key stake in the debates about the future of development effectiveness in realizing the 2030 Agenda.
Development effectiveness is a central research focus for the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE). This page presents a selection of relevant studies, projects and events of the institute.
