The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation was established during the Fourth High Level Forum (HLF4) in Busan to ensure that development co-operation has the maximum possible impact on development results.
This new, inclusive forum brings together a wide range of countries and organisations to foster engagement, communication and knowledge sharing among development actors, it also works to maintain political support for the commitments reached in Busan.
The OECD-UNDP’s joint support to the Global Partnership
The Busan Partnership agreement invited the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) to work together to provide support for the effective functioning of the Global Partnership. The UNDP-OECD joint support team includes dedicated staff across the two organisations to provide day–to-day secretariat support for the steering committee and the ministerial-level meetings of the Global Partnership.
The Global Partnership Monitoring Framework
The global monitoring framework supports international accountability for the implementation of Busan commitments. The Global Partnership is currently rolling out its first monitoring exercise. The results are scheduled to be released in the first quarter 2014 in order to feed the discussions of the first ministerial-level meeting.
