This is the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation 2019 Progress Report. Parts I and II of this report were released in advance of the Senior-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership, which took place on 13-14 July 2019, on the margins of the 2019 United Nations High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development. Parts I and II present results that have emerged from analysis of data collated for the 2018 Global Partnership Monitoring Round. Global Partnership progress reports enable policy makers to understand trends related to mainstreaming effective development co-operation principles into development co-operation practices at country level, and gain an outlook on key issues for the effectiveness agenda that require action over the coming years.

Parts I and II provide analysis and findings with respect to delivering against internationally agreed effectiveness commitments. A concluding Part III, informed by the discussions at the Senior-Level Meeting, reflects views of Global Partnership stakeholders on the evidence presented in Parts I and II as well as key messages to further shape the future of the monitoring exercise and effectiveness efforts.

The Global Partnership has produced progress reports since 2014 to generate evidence on implementation of internationally agreed principles for effective development co-operation that demonstrates where progress has been made and where challenges remain. The reports draw on data collated by partner countries and are one of the few sources of aggregate global data and analysis on development co-operation effectiveness. The progress reports are published jointly by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and the United Nations Development Programme. Their aims are to ensure that effectiveness remains high on the international development agenda while also supporting better policy to drive better results where they count most – on the ground.

All data presented herein, unless otherwise stated, are primary information reported by the partner country governments that participated in the Global Partnership’s biennial monitoring exercise. Other complementary sources of data used in the report are the latest available data at the time of writing, and are referenced accordingly.
