2022 Effective DevCo Summit: Advancing Development Co-operation

2022 Effective Development Co-operation Summit
Join DevCo Summit on 12-14 December !We need to transform the way we work together with governments, civil society, the private sector and others
New global challenges are affecting development progress — conflict, the pandemic, a looming climate emergency, and related socioeconomic shocks have stretched limited public resources, slowing down or even reversing progress toward the 2030 Agenda.


As a result of these crises, official development assistance (ODA) reached a record high in 2020. However, ODA alone will not be sufficient to meet these challenges’ rising needs. Response and recovery have forced many countries to increase borrowing, often diverting funds away from sustainable development plans. As we work toward achieving the SDGs, effective partnerships based on trust are essential for using local, national, and global resources in the most effective possible way.
Together with the Global Partnership on Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC), the UN SDG Action Campaign will demonstrate how better global cooperation strengthens trust in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. A high-level summit, hosted by the Global Partnership on 12-14 December 2022, will bring together Ministers, civil society, the private sector, multilateral development banks, and other key development partners to discuss development cooperation. Taking place at the midpoint of Agenda 2030, the Summit will put a spotlight on how better co-operation strengthens trust and transforms the way we work collaboratively.
The Summit will be a hybrid event from 12 to 14 December 2022 in Geneva, Switzerland with key events taking place in theRoad to the Summit,’ allowing actors to engage in various events throughout 2022.
