Civil society platform to push development actors to deliver effectiveness promises
At the HLM3 in Geneva, global civil society platform CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE) will call deliver on their effectiveness commitments towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Taking place at the midpoint of Agenda 2030, the EDC Summit aims to build trust between the various stakeholders to uphold the effectiveness principles – democratic ownership, inclusive partnerships, focus on results, and transparency and accountability – in the current context of the pandemic, a deepening climate emergency, and many economic shocks.
Specific demands from CPDE directed to the Summit participants include: the global North strengthening their Official Development Assistance (ODA) commitments;
The Summit will bring together ministers, decision-makers on development co-operation policies and programs, civil society leaders, corporate leaders, and other key actors from trade unions, foundations, multilateral development banks, local and regional governments, parliamentarians, and academia.
Government representatives include those from Bangladesh, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Indonesia, Switzerland, and UK.
This will be the third High Level Meeting (HLM3) organised by the platform Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC), the primary multi-stakeholder vehicle for driving development effectiveness.
For its part as the CSO representative to the GPEDC, CPDE is bringing 60 delegates from around the world to advocate the sector's demands.
CPDE is an open platform unites civil society organisations (CSOs) from around the world on the issue of effective development cooperation. They collaborate with civil society organisations and networks in more than a hundred countries, and their members come from six regions and eight sectors: faith-based, feminist, indigenous peoples, international CSOs, labour, migrants, rural, and youth.#
