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.

Sustainable Energy for All

Poverty and climate change are the two major challenges of our time. Sustainable energy holds huge potential for tackling these two challenges together, supporting action across all three pillars of sustainable development: economic growth, environmental protection and social progress. Energy is a development enabler for other crucial goals, such as health, gender equality, and access to food and water. The Sustainable Energy for All initiative is a unique partnership between the United Nations and the World Bank, along with a remarkable network of leaders from developing and developed country governments, the private sector, civil society, and multilateral and national financial institutions. This chapter describes how together they are catalysing action and investment to achieve three ambitious goals: ensuring universal access to modern energy services, doubling the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency and doubling the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.This chapter also includes an opinion piece by Mary Robinson, President of the Mary Robinson Foundation-Climate Justice and member of the Sustainable Energy for All Advisory Board.
