The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation helps nations, business and organisations work better together to end poverty. During the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan (Korea) in 2011, four principles were endorsed that form the foundation of effective development co-operation:

              - Ownership by developing countries;

              - A focus on results;

              - Inclusive development partnerships;

              - Transparency and accountability to one another.



On 15 and 16 April this year, the first High Level meeting of the Global Partnership will take place in Mexico-City. In the presence of heads of state and government, ministers, local and regional governments, parliamentarians, leaders of international organisations, civil society and key development actors, the progress of the implementation of the Busan commitments on aid effectiveness in 2011 will be discussed and reviewed, as for the Partnership as a central element in the 'how' of the implementation of the Post-2015 global development agenda.

The two-day forum includes five sessions, of which local and regional government participate only in the first three, in which critical themes for development will be assessed:

                 1. Progress on implementing the Busan commitments on effective development co-operation.

                 2. Tax and domestic resource mobilization.

                 3. Middle-income countries and effective development co-operation.

                 4. Knowledge sharing, South-South and triangular co-operation.

                 5. The private sector and effective development co-operation.
