• The 77th President of the General Assembly calls for building trust and tackling global interlocking challenges in his vision for ‘transformative solutions through solidarity, sustainability and science’. Against this backdrop, the Global Partnership’s upcoming 2022 Effective Development Co-operation Summit (12-14 December | Geneva/hybrid) provides an opportunity to transform the way we work together and more effectively address the multiple global challenges brought by COVID, climate change, conflict and economic shocks.


  • Through partnerships based on effective development principles of – country-ownership, a focus on results, inclusivity, as well as transparency and accountability – we can build and strengthen trust, especially at the country, regional and global levels.


  • At the Summit, the Global Partnership will launch the publication ‘Advancing Effective Development Co-operation in a Dynamic Global Context’.  Evidenced by a series of country-led Action Dialogues held in Africa, Asia and Latin America, the report highlights how actors from across the development landscape are taking forward effective development co-operation as a key lever to urgently scale up effective partnerships for maximizing results in COVID-19 recovery and SDG implementation.


  • The UN Secretary-General has emphasized that this year’s UNGA is “a time to recalibrate multilateralism and strengthen the foundations of global co-operation”. To that end, the Global Partnership will organize a virtual side event (15 September) to launch its analysis on effective multilateral support and donorship. The publication will emphasize how the multilateral system can serve as a more effective partner to collectively build more resilient and sustainable solutions as we inch closer to the 2030 Agenda deadline.
