The effectiveness principles are able to address the challenges encapsulated by the 2030 Agenda. However, it may not be a seamless transition. This Amphitheatre Session aims to identify how work on the development effectiveness principles will change once the 2030 Agenda becomes a larger focus for the Global Partnership, and what this will mean for us as development stakeholders in the partnership. It will ask what the different stakeholders in the Global Partnership might gain and/or lose by adjusting to the new Agenda, particularly in relation to: trust and accountability among development partners; respect for civic space; and donor commitments.
This Amphitheatre Session will consider how stakeholders feel about possible synergies and clashes between the different groups working on development effectiveness and the SDGs; the benefits and threats to the four development effectiveness principles when they are exposed to this universal and integrated agenda; and the potential risk of the Global Partnership losing its impact in a crowded space of multilateral platforms. It will ask if we should address this or just get on with agreed business.
