To achieve global goals, States must deliver on effectiveness commitments – CPDE
No to status quo! To achieve global goals, States must deliver on effectiveness commitments and focus on leaving no one behind – CPDE
Taking place on 18-19 September 2023, the Summit marks the halfway point for accomplishing the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development. The 2030 Agenda is a global plan of action to drive economic prosperity and social well-being while protecting the environment.
"Status quo is no longer an option. The world is reeling from the impacts of the pandemic, climate crisis, war, and conflict. The reality on the ground is so remote from the aspirations of the 2030 Agenda, and the vast majority is being left behind. To respond to the situation, we need a drastic change in strategy, and concrete and urgent actions," explains Richard Ssewakiryanga, CPDE Co-chair.
"We urge governments meeting in the UN General Assembly to uphold the effectiveness principles of democratic ownership, inclusive partnerships, focus on results, and transparency and accountability, to allow us to correct our course amid the aftermath of multiple socioeconomic crises. Further, we urge that development cooperation be focused on serving the most impoverished and marginalised,"
The platform's demands are based on the findings of its Voluntary National Reviews (VNRs) study, which bears the following recommendations:
At the event, CPDE will also call for a reversal of the trend of shrinking civic space and criminalisation of dissent, which significantly hamper CSOs' ability to operate as development actors in their own right. The People's Assembly will be held on 17-18 September 2023.
CPDE is also bringing the UnMet Gala (https://csopartnership.org/
Finally, in time for the High-Level Dialogue on Financing for Development on 19 September, CPDE will also be raising its demands for a global financial architecture that is anchored in development effectiveness principles, a human rights-based approach, and people-centered development.
