The Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (hereafter Global Partnership), created at the 2011 High-Level Meeting in Busan, is a multi-stakeholder global platform to advance the effectiveness of development efforts by all actors. It does this by regularly monitoring progress on the implementation of agreed development effectiveness principles and related commitments at the country level; and by facilitating dialogue and encouraging the sharing of experiences among relevant stakeholders.

During the first monitoring exercise (2013-2014), 11 partner countries reported on Chinese development cooperation data, amounting to over 770 million USD in total. In this case, UNDP China undertook a research paper titled Demand-Driven Data: How Partner Countries are Gathering Chinese Development Cooperation Information, which provided analyses of the determining factors and mechanisms behind the reporting process, and how to improve the data gathering process.

This policy brief is to summarize the research findings and shed light on how the GPEDC can carry on adapting its monitoring for SSC to make the current monitoring framework more relevant and to translate the Paris principles into a format more suitable for cooperation towards achieving the 2030 Agenda.
