What’s the Global Partnership for Effective Development?
The Global Partnership was created at the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan (South Korea) in 2011 and came into effect in 2012. It brings together governments, bilateral and multilateral organizations, civil society and representatives from parliaments and the private sector all committed to strengthening the effectiveness of their development co-operation.
Realizing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development requires the mobilization and effective use of all types of development resources.
The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation provides a unique platform to advance the effectiveness of development efforts by all actors, to deliver results that are long-lasting and contribute to the achievement of the SDGs.
It supports and ensures accountability for the implementation of shared principles and differentiated commitments at the political level. It contributes to the strengthening of the global partnership for sustainable development.
