The Effectiveness Principles
The Four Effectiveness Principles
Agreed in 2011 (as in the Nairobi Document) by more than 161 countries and 56 organizations, the four principles of effective development co-operation provide a framework for more equal and empowered partnerships and more sustainable development outcomes.
The importance of these principles today is illustrated by the 86 governments – a record-breaking number - who led country level engagement in Global Partnership’s last monitoring exercise in 2018. They were joined by more than 100 development partners and hundreds of civil society organizations, private sector representatives, foundations, trade unions, parliamentarians and local governments. These countries believe that the effectiveness principles are critical multiplier for their development efforts.
Implementing the effectiveness principles
The Global Partnership supports the implementation of the effective development co-operation commitments at the country and global levels through its flagship monitoring exercise and report.
Drawing on the results of the 2018 monitoring exercise and guidance from the Co-Chairs and Steering Committee, the Global Partnership’s 2020-2022 Work Programme focuses on three strategic priorities:
- Promoting development effectiveness to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda
- Building better partnerships
- Leveraging monitoring for action
The Work Programme is underpinned by an openness to self-reflection and change, including a review and evaluation of the Global Partnership over the course of the 2020-22 cycle, to inform its political offer and propose adjustments to its governance and institutional set-up.
