Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation: What It Means for ADB
The aid effectiveness agenda has evolved over the past decade and shifted the focus from delivering “effective aid” to achieving “effective development cooperation.” The Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation, launched at the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan in 2011, marked this shift, and highlighted the importance of partnerships based on shared principles for achieving development results. The first High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership in Mexico in 2014 upheld these principles and agreed on priorities to sustain progress toward effective development cooperation.
ADB has participated in this development effectiveness journey. It remains committed to the Busan principles that guide effective development cooperation. ADB will focus on priorities highlighted at the Mexico meeting, as part implementing its Strategy 2020 midterm review strategic directions for the future.
This publication discusses the priorities and principles put forward by the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation, and highlights how ADB has been implementing these priorities and principles. This knowledge product is intended to inform staff and ADB’s stakeholders on ADB’s international commitments on development effectiveness, and guide discussions on partnerships at the country level.
