Civil Society Reflections on Progress in Achieving Development Effectiveness: Inclusion, Accountability and Transparency
The 2019 CPDE Monitoring Report’s Key Messages and Recommendations aim to inform and augment dialogue in the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (henceforth the Global Partnership). CPDE is committed to dialogue on outstanding development effectiveness challenges, including ‘unfinished business’ for many key commitments and indicators agreed in Paris (2005) and Busan (2011).
The Report focuses on the centrality of democratic country ownership by examining in more depth issues of inclusion in development policy and practices, in the context of a human rights-based approach (HRBA) to development cooperation.
A HRBA guides both the content of development, based on the intrinsic human rights of people as rights-holders, and the ways in which States as development actors and duty-bearers, undertake development cooperation. This latter dimension of HRBA informs this Report, given the mandate of the Global Partnership.
