This workshop is in line with Strategic Output 1: Enhanced support to effective development co-operation at
country level of the 2017-2018 Work Programme of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation.
Under this Strategic Output, the Global Partnership aims to support countries in mainstreaming effectiveness principles into development co-operation practices and strategically managing diverse development co-operation resources, as well as ensuring that country-level evidence on progress and challenges informs multi-stakeholder dialogue at national, regional and global levels to drive political decisions and promote behaviour change.
The objectives of the workshop are to: (i) review common challenges in the implementation of effective
development co-operation commitments and to share lessons on addressing these challenges; (ii) develop a
common understanding of the conceptual approach for the piloting work, including desired outcomes and
implementation modalities; (iii) facilitate peer learning on the design of individual country pilots; and (iv)
agree on next steps for the piloting work, including communications and reporting plans.
