About the DCF

The Development Cooperation Forum is the principal platform for global policy dialogue on development cooperation, engaging all stakeholders.

The DCF has a clear, broad mandate to review trends and progress in development cooperation. The Forum encourages discussion on the future of development cooperation. It works to promote greater coherence in development policy and among partners.

The DCF informs the Financing for Development follow-up process and contributes to implementation of the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. The High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development takes the work of the DCF into account in its review of progress towards the post-2015 development agenda.
