The Global Partnership Initiatives (GPIs) are voluntary initiatives led by different types of development actors (e.g. national governments, international organisations, civil society organisations, trade unions, parliamentarians, local and regional governments, foundations, private sector) to advance implementation of development effectiveness principles and commitments agreed through the Busan Partnership Agreement (2011), the Mexico High Level Meeting Communiqué (2014) and the Nairobi Outcome Document (2016). GPIs test new approaches, generate evidence and develop innovative ways to drive implementation of these principles and commitments. They also spearhead the achievement of development results at country and regional levels.

GPIs contribute to reaching the Global Partnership’s vision by directly implementing commitments and by generating evidence, policy-relevant lessons and innovative solutions that can feed both mutual accountability and learning within the Global Partnership.
