2022 Effective Development Co-operation Summit : Transforming the Way We Work Together
Development progress is faced with a new era of global challenges — conflict, the pandemic, a deepening climate emergency, and related socio-economic shocks that have strained limited public resources, slowing down, and in some instances reversing, progress towards the 2030 Agenda.
In response to these crises, official development assistance (ODA) reached a new high in 2020. Nonetheless, ODA alone will not suffice to meet rising needs to confront these challenges. Many countries have seen themselves forced to increase borrowing for response and recovery, often diverting funding away from planned sustainable development activities.
In this critical time, effective partnering based on trust is a compass and catalyst for using local, national and global resources in the best possible way for faster and more sustainable impact as we look to achieve the SDGs.
The UN SDG Action Campaign is joining forces with Global Partnership on Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC) to show how better global cooperation strengthens trust to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals. On 12–14 December 2022, the Summit, hosted by the Global Partnership, will gather Ministers and other high-level development co-operation partners from local and national governments, civil society, the private sector, multilateral development banks, and other key development partners. Taking place at the midpoint of Agenda 2030, the Summit will put a spotlight on how better co-operation strengthens trust and transforms the way we work together.
