Global Partnership Invites Stakeholders to Complete Knowledge Sharing Needs Assessment – Available in EN, ES and FR

The Global Partnership invites you to complete a Needs Assessment Survey to help inform our knowledge sharing efforts. The survey is publicly available through 29 September, and open to all those interested in effective development co-operation.

This Needs Assessment survey will allow all Global Partnership stakeholders to identify crucial needs for increasing the effectiveness of their development co-operation and partnerships. It will help define the initial scope and objectives of the Global Partnership knowledge platform, which will provide a space for practitioners, networks, working groups and initiatives to collaborate on issues related to effective development co-operation. The Needs Assessment survey will also help to identify thematic areas, and knowledge-sharing tools and instruments useful for the work of the Global Partnership’s diverse membership.

As noted in its 2017-2018 Work Programme, under output three: Increased Knowledge Sharing for Development Effectiveness, this survey is part of the Global Partnership’s efforts to bring together the lessons learned from different practical approaches and experiences for strengthening the effectiveness of development co-operation available across constituencies.

The Needs Assessment Survey can be found at the following link:

It is also available in French and Spanish.

Fourth Busan Global Partnership Forum taking place 21-22 November

The Government of the Republic of Korea will host its Fourth Busan Global Partnership Forum from 21-22 November 2017 in Busan, South Korea.

The Korean government launched the Busan Global Partnership Forum in 2014 with the aim of supporting the implementation of the Busan commitments at the country level and sustaining the ambitions of the Global Partnership. The Busan Global Partnership Forum provides a unique opportunity to bring together policy makers and practitioners to share country experiences and explore in detail the enabling factors and contexts that led to successful development outcomes.

The overall objectives of the forums include:

  • Strengthening support for the Busan Principles and commitments;
  • Reviewing progress in implementing the principles and commitments at the country level and sharing critical knowledge and experiences;
  • Capitalizing on the work of previous Busan forums, the Global Partnership and the Global Partnership Initiatives while feeding the forum outcomes to the Global Partnership; and
  • Contributing to the successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Following up on the success of the forums from 2014 onwards, the 2017 Forum will serve as a platform for discussions by a range of stakeholders including governments, civil society, the private sector and international organisations to significantly enhance efforts by all stakeholders to have an impact at country level; increase high-level political engagement and action across the Global Partnership; attract greater interest and participation from emerging economies and emerging development partners from the South, the private sector, foundations, parliamentarians and local government; secure sufficient funding from across the Global Partnership; and address the way forward for the Global Partnership to contribute to successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs.
