Enhanced Effectiveness at Country Level

Summary of Pilot Focus Areas

Nine country pilots are being undertaken under Strategic Output 1 of the 2017-2018 Work Programme of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC). The objective of these pilots is to support increased effectiveness at country level and to demonstrate the positive impact of effective development co-operation and the achievement of national, regional and global development goals. The focus and design of the pilots varies from country to country, depending on country context. They will draw on the GPEDC’s ability to connect country-level evidence with global policy dialogue and commitments, promoting responsive behaviour change on the part of all development stakeholders. The overall aim of the pilot approach is to understand the types of activities taking place, to document best practices and collect and analyse evidence, developing stories around effectiveness efforts. The pilots are being supported by the European Commission (supporting pilots in Cambodia, El Salvador, Kenya and Malawi) and the Government of Germany (supporting pilots in Bangladesh, Georgia, Mexico, Rwanda and Uganda).
