Partner country governments are leading sustainable development efforts. They are putting in place new plans, policies and systems enabling coalitions of stakeholders to take more effective actions to implement the SDGs, moving increasingly from a ‘whole-of-government’ to a ‘whole-of-society’ approach. This emerging implementation architecture covers the full development management cycle – from planning to financing and implementation, all the way to monitoring, evaluation and accountability and aims at strengthening The four internationally agreed principles of effective development co-operation, promoted and supported by the GPEDC, can guide these efforts for improving quality, effectiveness and impact of development co-operation.
The evolving development co-operation and partnership landscape is challenged by the current COVID-19 situation and its wide-ranging implications. Now more than ever, partner country governments and their partners need to come together and confront complex development challenges through increased and more effective co-operation that maximises impact and gets them on track to achieve the SDGs by 2030.
This GPEDC Partner Country Community Group is dedicated and open to government officials from partner countries across the globe, who are interested in and/or already working on advancing the effectiveness of development co-operation.
The Group provides a virtual space for partner country governments to share knowledge and interrelate information strengthen the voice on effectiveness issues within and beyond the GPEDC. It will serve as a mutual learning space for peers to generate, discuss, and exchange good practices for addressing specific effectiveness challenges that can be applied in countries’ own context and are of particular interest to them. Group members can share their own content and information on upcoming events and other engagement opportunities. Concrete GPEDC engagement opportunities that arise from the implementation of its 2020-2022 Work Programme and in the run up to the Global Partnership’s third High-level Meeting in 2022 will also be communicated through the group.
