Tackling fragility will be one of the most pressing challenges of the 21st century. Recognising the need to reach populations at risk of being left behind, the international community has begun to adapt and scale-up targeted efforts. While effective development co-operation is fundamental in all contexts to achieve lasting development results, it is particularly crucial in fragile situations. Relevant data are urgently needed to inform these scaled up efforts and reinforce mutual accountability of all partners. Cutting-edge evidence will enable robust, timely policy decisions to ensure that development co-operation is effective, achieves maximum impact and yields lasting development results to realise the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
To this end, under the auspices of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation, an open working group was convened to guide, in an inclusive and transparent manner, the development of a tailored approach to monitor the effectiveness of development co-operation in fragile and conflict-affected situations.
