Fourth Busan Global Partnership Forum taking place 21-22 November

By Global Partnership

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.
