In 2015, CPDE engaged meaningfully in the Global Partnership and the Post-2015 processes. The platform’s efforts to influence the policy discussions and engage in the negotiations brought considerable outcomes in further enhancing the implementation of effective development cooperation at all levels. Among these notable outcomes were the recognition of the need for human rights-based approach to development and inclusivity in decision-making and multi-stakeholder dialogues. Aside from its policy engagement and advocacy, capacity development activities were sustained among the platform constituencies. CSO Development Effectiveness and Accountability had been continuously propagated among the platform’s constituencies through a number of trainings and workshops on these issues, and this raised the awareness of members on the need to implement the Istanbul Principles and International Framework for CSO Development Effectiveness.
While 2015 had been a remarkable year for development, there remains to be a challenge in effecting effective development for 2016, most especially in light of the Second High Level Ministerial Meeting of the GPEDC later in the year.
