Towards a New Pact on Multilateralism to Achieve the 2030 Agenda Together
This report contributes to the broader international debate on why we need multilateralism
and how to make it more effective to achieve the 2030 Agenda. At a time when the value
of multilateralism is being questioned, the report provides new evidence and recommendations
for a new “pact” on multilateralism. This pact would be founded on recognition of
the mutual responsibility of sovereign states and multilateral institutions to create
a stronger, more effective multilateral system.
The report offers a detailed overview of official development assistance (ODA) spending
through the multilateral system. This year’s edition introduces three innovations.
First, it examines the growing role of China, other sovereign states, philanthropy
and the private sector as funders of multilateral organisations. Second, it analyses
concessional and non-concessional spending by multilateral institutions, and discusses
how multilateral action needs to adapt to the new development agenda. Third, it presents
a new multi-dimensional metrics to measure the quality of multilateral funding, using
financing to the World Health Organisation as a case study. Building on this evidence,
the report outlines policy recommendations that provide a sound basis for principles
of good multilateral donorship to deliver on the 2030 Agenda.
COUNTRY FACT SHEETS: HOW ARE DAC MEMBERS USING THE MULTILATERAL SYSTEM?
The Multilateral Development Finance Report provides country fact sheets of the ODA contributions to the multilateral system by the 30 members of the Development Assistance Committee. The country fact sheets contain data on both core and earmarked to multilateral agencies.
THE OECD METRICS ON GOOD MULTILATERAL FUNDING: PROFILES OF 12 SELECTED CONTRIBUTORS TO THE WHO
