ECOSOC will hold a Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) preparatory meeting on “The Changing Context of Development: What does it mean for Cooperation and Global Parntership” on 9 February
The global partnership for development agreed at major UN conferences, remains the centrepiece of international development cooperation. However, in a changing development landscape, the global partnership itself is evolving as new players with new approaches to development cooperation and new aid modalities are making an increasingly important contribution to development.
Against this backdrop, ECOSOC will hold this one-day DCF preparatory meeting in New York on “The Changing Context of Development: What does it mean for Cooperation and Global Parntership”. The meeting will examine key trends in development cooperation that have emerged in recent years and how they are shaping the future of development cooperation and the institutional arrangements that govern this cooperation.
Two panel discussions will focus on “New dynamics of development cooperation: challenges and opportunities” and “Gearing development cooperation towards sustainable development” respectively.
