Effective Development Co-operation Monitoring Workshop Summary Now Available

By Global Partnership

Monitoring effective development co-operation: what have we achieved; how can we do better?, a workshop at the margins of the Second High-Level Meeting (HLM2) of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation, took stock of progress in implementing the commitments for more effective development co-operation, mapping existing bottlenecks and discussing possible solutions.

Held on 29 November 2016 in Nairobi, Kenya, the workshop also assessed emerging challenges for development effectiveness and reflected on how to update the existing global monitoring framework in the context of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Discussions drew on the findings from the 2016 Global Partnership Progress Report, online consultations, regional consultations and other preparatory events held ahead of HLM2. Its conclusions were reported during HLM2’s first plenary.

The monitoring workshop’s six sessions gave participants the opportunity to engage in critical dialogue around the following topics:

1. Overview of the 2016 monitoring round
2. Increasing the focus on development results
3. Strengthening country ownership
4. Creating inclusive partnerships for development
5. Improving transparency and accountability
6. Updating and refining the Global Partnership’s monitoring framework for the future
