Delivering as One: Global Partnerships for Global Goals
The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs invites, on behalf of Co-Chair to the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation and Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Ms. Lilianne Ploumen,
The universality, interconnectedness and ambition of the Global Goals require a holistic approach. Many global partnerships were established to address one of the MDGs and are often focused on a specific sector or issue. However, in order to effectively implement the 2030 Agenda there is a need to work beyond sectors and to increase the synergy between partnerships. Considering that development happens at the country level, it is necessary to foster cross-sectorial cooperation on this level to be able to deliver as one. But what does this mean for the existing global partnerships?
The session will bring together front-running, global figures and experts to discuss potential ways global partnerships can contribute to the coverage of all the Global Goals and deliver as one. The event will be opened by a key-note from Mr. Jeroen Roodenburg, Ambassador Private Sector and International Cooperation for the Kingdom of the Netherlands and kick off with a ‘Setting the Stage’ session by Special Adviser for the 2030 Agenda, Mr. David Nabarro, followed by an interactive panel discussion. The discussion will be moderated by Ms. Theo Sowa, CEO of the African Women’s Development Fund. Members of the panel are:
Tedros Adhanom, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Government of Ethiopia
Robin Gorna, Executive Director, PMNCH
Catherine Russell, U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for Global Women’s Issues, USAID
Jan-Willem Scheijgrond, Global Head of Government Affairs B2G, Philips
Lieve Fransen, Senior Policy Adviser, Philips
Susan Myers, Senior Vice President, UN Foundation
Geoff Adlide, Director of Advocacy and Communications, GPE
Vagn Berthelsen, CEO, Oxfam IBIS
The event is open to all Member States, representatives of non-governmental organizations and the general public. To RSVP, please contact Nuschka Holtkamp at Nuschka.Holtkamp@minbuza.nl.
