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) that are committed to advance specific commitments for effective development co-operation agreed through the Busan Partnership Agreement, as well as make progress in new and innovative areas of the Global Partnership.

GPIs regroup initiatives that were formerly known as Busan Building Blocks (launched at the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, Busan, 2011) and Voluntary Initiatives (launched at the first High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership, Mexico City, 2014).

For more information on the origins of the Building Blocks and Voluntary Initiatives, please consult the Busan Building Blocks Concept Notes and the list of Voluntary Initiatives in Annex 1 of the Mexico High-Level Meeting Communiqué.
