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.

The Partnership in Statistics for Development in the 21st Century (PARIS21)

PARIS21 is an established multi-stakeholder partnership that contributes to building statistical capacity in developing countries through support for the production of high-quality and timely statistics; co-ordination among providers of development co-operation, policy makers, and data users and producers; and support for documenting, archiving and disseminating data. It also helps to forge strong alliances among key players in statistics, data and development, and has provided platforms for developing countries to make their voices heard. A data revolution will be required to achieve and track the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in developing countries. This chapter outlines the strengths of PARIS21 in partnering with the global community to support this data revolution, as well as the challenges it faces.This chapter also includes an opinion piece by Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of Oxfam International.
