The Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC) is committed to a set of principles to guide effective development cooperation and an inclusive multi-stakeholder engagement to implement commitments related to these principles. These commitments were agreed at the Fourth High Level Forum held in Busan, Republic of Korea, in November 2011. It was also agreed following Busan that the GPEDC would implement a partner country-led monitoring process based on ten indicators documenting progress on the Busan commitments. Indicator Two focuses on the Busan commitment to enable “civil society [to operate] within an environment that maximizes its engagement in and contribution to development.”

Since this first High Level Meeting, the CSO Partnership for Effective Development (CPDE) and the multi-stakeholder Task Team for CSO Development Effectiveness and Enabling Environment worked with the GPEDC Joint Support Team to develop a comprehensive approach and methodology for Indicator Two. The GPEDC Steering Committee approved this methodology at its meeting in October 2015. Indicator Two was implemented in more than 70 partner countries as part of the Second Monitoring Round from October 2015 to March 2016.
