Making Partnerships Effective Coalitions for Action

image of Development Co-operation Report 2015

With the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals, the question of how to finance, implement and monitor these goals moves to the centre of the debate. Today, international development co-operation takes place in an increasingly complex environment, with an ever growing number of actors, policies and instruments involved. This complexity raises the stakes for achieving the goals, but also opens up new opportunities. Although governments will remain the key actors in the implementation of the new post-2015 goals, the role of non-state actors such as civil society, foundations and business is growing. Their association through effective partnerships will be key to the implementation of the post-2015 agenda.

The Development Co-operation Report 2015 explores the potential of networks and partnerships to create incentives for responsible action, as well as innovative, fit-for-purpose ways of co-ordinating the activities of diverse stakeholders. The report – Making Partnerships Effective Coalitions for Action – looks at a number of existing partnerships working in diverse sectors, countries and regions to draw lessons and provide practical guidance, proposing ten success factors for post-2015 partnerships. A number of leading policy makers and politicians share their insights and views.

Learning from experience with the Millennium Development Goals as policy and advocacy tools

As the international community moves towards implementation of the new Sustainable Development Goals, learning from the experience of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) can help to make the new goals function as influential policy tools. Evidence shows that the global narrative around the MDGs not only increased public and political support for international development, it also resulted in the reorientation of development co-operation programmes and policies, and promoted behaviour changes within development co-operation agencies. This section looks at these changes among the members of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), drawing on a representative sample of eight DAC member countries.
