What is an Action Dialogue?

Led by partner country governments, an Action Dialogue aims to bring stakeholders together at country level to build a shared understanding on why effectiveness matters and how to urgently scale up effective partnerships to maximise development impact for COVID-19 recovery and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) implementation.

In addition to making development co-operation more effective at country level, these Dialogues will build momentum toward the Global Partnership’s Third High-Level Meeting in 2022.

Linking Dialogues with Global Partnership Action Areas

The Global Partnership Work Programme is implemented by multi-stakeholder groups and organized in thematic Action Areas:

Action Area 1.1: Demonstrating the Impact of Effectiveness

The Effectiveness to Impact initiatives proposed by Action Area 1.1 (“Demonstrating the Impact of Effectiveness”) offer a range of practical technical expertise to support Government and development partners in selected (sub-) sectors. The Initiative will help partner countries to strengthen the functioning of sector development processes, and by doing so, achieve faster impact and accelerate progress on the specific SDGs prioritized by the sector. In your Action Dialogue, you might wish to consider whether an Effectiveness to Impact initiative might be a useful tool to implement in practice some of the improvements in effectiveness that the Action Dialogue identifies as priorities to be addressed. 

Want to know more about the initiatives and discuss how Action Area 1.1 can support a discussion in the Action Dialogues?

Action Area 2.4: Civil Society Partnerships

Civil society organisations (CSOs) play a fundamental and independent role in development, including in the context of the COVID 19 pandemic, through their outreach and roots in developing communities, by empowering and providing services as well as ensuring that the voices of all groups of society are heard. For partner country governments interested in leading an Action Dialogue with a focus on strengthening civil society partnerships and enabling CSO engagement in development processes – Action Area 2.4 of the Global Partnership provides you the unique opportunity to jointly collaborate with CSOs and diverse development actors to create enabling conditions for effective action!
