Vertice di cooperazione allo sviluppo efficace


Experts to discuss the need for ‘effective’ partnering to strengthen trust, and transform the way we work together in a new era of global challenges

Tuesday, 26 April

8:00 – 9:30 a.m. EST


The Road to the 2022 Effective Development Co-operation Summit will be launched at a virtual side-event called ‘Effective Partnering: A Compass for Financing in a New Era’ during the UN Financing for Development Forum on 26 April. This side event will discuss a) why a principled approach to recover better together is essential and needs to be informed through evidence gathered from country-led Action Dialogues and b) how resources can be effectively utilized through effective partnering with development partners, multilateral development banks and the private sector to meet the challenges of today.

In 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, to strengthen trust and transform the way we work together. The Summit will be a hybrid event held in Geneva, Switzerland.


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.
