DPG Tanzania

The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation was established at the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, in 2011. It is an inclusive political forum bringing together governments, bilateral and multilateral organizations, civil society and representatives from parliaments, local governments, foundations and the private sector from around the world that are committed to strengthening the effectiveness of development cooperation to produce maximum impact for development. It fosters engagement and knowledge exchange in the implementation of agreements on the principles of effective development co-operation (EDC) 1: ownership by developing countries, focus on results, partnerships for inclusive development and transparency and accountability.

The monitoring exercise aims at providing evidence on progress, opportunities and obstacles in the implementation of EDC commitments, in order to support mutual accountability and stimulate and inform multi-stakeholder dialogue at country, regional and global levels on how to make development co-operation more effective. As highlighted in the Addis Ababa Action Agenda, improving the quality, impact and effectiveness of development co-operation will be crucial to ensure that the Sustainable Development Goals are achieved.
