The year 2020 marks the beginning of a ‘Decade of Action’ towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. At the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the global context for development and is threatening past achievements and hard-won development gains.
The solidarity that brought the global community together to create the SDGs is needed now more than ever. To this end, improving the quality of development co-operation and the effectiveness of development partnerships to implement the SDGs is imperative. Learning from the experience of different countries across the globe on how to best partner and work together will be key to enable and encourage all actors to use policies and tools that help achieve national development priorities, and the SDGs by 2030.
Against this backdrop, the Global Partnership is organizing a global webinar series on different aspects of effective development co-operation at country level to enable mutual learning and sharing of insights across practitioners and policy makers and to cultivate a stronger community of practice on effective development co-operation. The webinars target a broad multi-stakeholder audience from partner country and development partner governments to parliamentarians, civil society and the private sector who are engaged in development co-operation. They are promoted widely through the Global Partnership network and open to all interested participants.
Topics for upcoming webinars are currently under consideration and crowdsourced through the Global Partnership’s Knowledge Platform. If interested in sharing your ideas on future webinar topics, please sign up to the Knowledge Platform and comment on our discussion thread below.
