Mobilising Resources for Sustainable Development

image of Development Co-operation Report 2014

The Development Co-operation Report (DCR) is a yearly report by the Chair of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) that addresses important challenges for the international development community and provides practical guidance and recommendations on how to tackle them. Moreover, it reports the profiles and performance of DAC development co-operation providers and presents DAC statistics on official development assistance (ODA) and private resource flows.

The Development Co-operation Report 2014: Mobilising resources for sustainable development is the second in a trilogy (2013-15) focusing on “Global Development Co-operation Post-2015: Managing Interdependence”. The report provides an overview of the sources of finance available to developing countries and proposes recommendations on how to mobilise further resources. It also explores how to mobilise resources to finance the provision of global public goods: for example, to combat climate change, promote peace and security, and create a fair and equal trading system.

Foundations as development partners

Philanthropic foundations play an important role in sustainable development – not only in mobilising financial resources, but also as development actors in their own right. Until recently, however, official development agencies and foundations have followed parallel paths without much collaboration. Yet, including foundations more strategically in development policy processes can reinforce their role as partners, rather than solely as financiers. Foundations have advantages over official development co-operation providers that include greater operating freedom, capacity for innovation and risk-taking, and ability to leverage additional funding. This chapter outlines some ways forward for enhancing collaboration and joint funding, building on each other’s comparative advantages and shared thematic interests.
