The 2014 High Level Meeting in Mexico

Key Messages for the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation April 2014 High Level Meeting

The Key Messages – Promote Inclusive Development and Democratic Ownership in Development Cooperation at the 2014 Mexico High Level Meeting were developed by Task Team members in February 2014. These Messages address the main commitments in relation to civil society, aid and development effectiveness made at the Busan High Level Forum in 2011 and previously at the Accra High Level Forum in 2008, under the broad rubric of Inclusive Development. The Key Messages are also available in French and Spanish.

In addition to the aforementioned full key messages, the Secretariat of the Task Team also produced An Extract of the Key Messages for the 2014 High Level Meeting in Mexico.
