Global Partnership Initiatives (GPIs) contribute to the Global Partnership’s vision by directly implementing the internationally-agreed development effectiveness principles and sharing their knowledge to support greater development impact.

GPIs are voluntary initiatives led by national governments, civil society organisations, foundations and members of the private sector, among others. They generate policy-relevant lessons and innovative solutions, sharing this knowledge to spur more effective development co-operation at the country, regional and global levels.
