Hot Off the Press: Global Partnership Releases Fresh Evidence on Effectiveness

By Global Partnership

Following the data collection and validation process for the third biennial monitoring round of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation, the first and second part of the 2019 Progress Report is now available!

Two parts of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation 2019 Progress Report are being released sequentially in advance of the Senior-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership, which will take place on 13-14 July 2019, in the margins of the 2019 United Nations High-level Political Forum for Sustainable Development (HLPF).

Parts I and II provide analysis and findings with respect to delivering against internationally-agreed effectiveness commitments. This first Part, now released, looks at how partner countries are putting in place the building blocks for effective partnerships. The second Part assesses how development partners are supporting country-led efforts for sustainable development.

The full report will be published in late 2019, and will include a concluding Part III informed by the discussions at the Senior-Level Meeting. This final part will reflect views of Global Partnership stakeholders to the evidence presented in Parts I and II, as well as key messages to further shape the future of the monitoring exercise and effectiveness efforts.

The 2019 Progress Report presents results and analysis from the 2018 Monitoring Round, which was led by a record 86 partner countries and territories, in collaboration with more than 100 development partners, and hundreds of civil society organisations, private sector representatives, foundations, trade unions, parliamentarians and local governments.

More than 3,300 projects and programmes, amounting to USD 64.7 billion, that were reported in the 2018 Monitoring Round are captured in the 2019 Progress Report. In addition, USD 58.8 billion in development co-operation funding disbursed as grants and loans by development partners is assessed, including USD 37.8 billion disbursed directly to the public sector in the 86 participating countries.
