November 2014 Global Partnership Workshop – Seoul

On 6-7 November 2014 the Republic of Korea organized an annual workshop in Seoul bringing together over 100 development leaders, including developing countries, Northern and Southern providers, the private sector, academia and many others.

Using the Busan Partnership Agreement as the guiding principles, the workshop:

  • provided qualitative evidence and a knowledge base on how to implement the Busan commitments on the ground
  • created an inclusive forum for development actors across different sectors to bring their experience and insights
  • complemented the work of the Steering Committee and biannual High-Level Meetings by collecting inputs and recommendations to strengthen the work of the Global Partnership

The Task Team contributed to the plenary session 2 item on “Inclusive Partnerships and Multi-stakeholder Approaches to Development”, the working group session on Inclusive Partnerships and Multi-stakeholder Approaches and the Strengthening Monitoring Tools and Processes Breakout Group Discussion on Indicator 2 (Civil society operates within an environment which maximizes its engagement in and contribution to development).

The speech that Task Team co-chair Modibo Makalou held for plenary session 2 on “Inclusive Partnerships and Multi-stakeholder Approaches to Development” is available here.
