 Facebook live chat on a renewed global partnership for developmentFollowing its first report ‘Realizing the future we want for all’, which provided initial thinking on potential dimensions and contours of a renewed global development agenda, the UN System Task Team on the Post-2015 UN Development Agenda just published its second report.

Focusing on the global partnership, the report ‘A renewed global partnership for development’, provides a set of recommendations on the potential format and dimensions of a global partnership for the post-2015 era, including the establishment of robust mutual accountability systems.

The global partnership for development, as crystallized in Millennium Development Goal 8 has played a crucial role in galvanizing international support for development. But the world is not the same as it was in 2000. Many pressing issues of a global nature have emerged in recent years, which require true collective action from all countries to create an enabling environment for development.

Such a renewed global partnership for development to underpin any post-2015 development agenda must be broader in scope and deeper than the current one. While existing commitments, as reflected in MDG 8 remain highly relevant, new thinking is needed on how to reflect pressing development challenges and the increasing importance of a large array of stakeholders engaged in development cooperation. In order to ensure coherence and effective coordination a robust mutual accountability mechanism will be needed all levels.

A Facebook chat on 4 April will offer the opportunity to discuss key findings of the report directly with the authors. It will also provide a chance to learn more about the future global partnership for development. Ask UN experts your questions and sign up to join the event on 4 April from 9:00 – 11:00 am EDT.
