Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), amidst the COVID-19 crisis, will require, now more than ever, scaling up effective co-operation and partnerships across public, private, national and international stakeholders. Improving how we partner and co-operate together, based on the four internationally-agreed effectiveness principles, is essential to support global recovery and realize the 2030 Agenda.
In light of enormous challenges faced by the international community, the Global Partnership invites all countries and their stakeholders to consider the following tools and initiatives for further reflection and action dialogue to scale up collective action, unlocking the full potential of partnerships to help build back better and achieve the SDGs by 2030. The Global Partnership will stand ready to support these efforts.
The following evidence-based tools and guides will support Global Partnership stakeholders to better understand the monitoring results most relevant to them and use this evidence to identify actions to improve effectiveness policy and practice:
Country Profiles provide a snapshot of each country or territory’s progress, in achieving more effective development co-operation, alongside analysis and trends that emerged from the 2018 monitoring round.
Data Profile tools provide partner country and development partner data for action on monitoring results and allow stakeholders to view their progress, explore results of different partners and compare results with other country contexts and global averages. This offering of the data tool is complementary to the Monitoring Dashboard;
Self-reflection Guides help Global Partnership stakeholders analyse and interpret their monitoring results, in turn informing action on policy and practices through self-assessment.
- The partner country guide supports partner countries to interpret and reflect on their monitoring results, through the lens of their own country context and development co-operation landscape;
- The development partner guide recognises diversity across development partners, their histories and practices, and supports reflection on the factors which may influence their monitoring results;
- The civil society enabling environment guide (Indicator 2) provides guidance and questions to interpret the monitoring results on CSO effectiveness and enabling environment and to identify the policies and practices that may be driving these results. It is useful for civil society organisations, partner country governments and development partners who wish to self-reflect on their performance or to discuss collectively in a multi-stakeholder setting;
- The guide on the quality of public-private dialogue (PPD) (Indicator 3) provides guidance and self-reflection questions for stakeholders to interpret and take action on monitoring results. The guide provides several examples of how private sector engagement and public-private dialogue (PPD) has been part of efficient responses to the COVID-19 crisis at the country level and introduces the Global Partnership’s Kampala Principles on Effective Private Sector Engagement in Development Co-operation.
