The CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness joined the Global Village in this year’s European Development Days (EDD) with a stand titled: Partnering with Civil Society for an Effective COVID Recovery: Why Inclusive Partnerships with CSOs will ensure that the Effectiveness Principles support COVID Recovery. Held 21st and 22nd of June at Brussels Expo, the EDD showcased projects, reports, and activities supported by the European Commission around the world. The theme for this year was “Global gateway: Building sustainable partnerships for a connected world.” The programme consisted of 90+ sessions co-created with the EDD community. In line with this, CPDE focused on the role of partnerships in responding to the most pressing global challenge we face today: recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic. CPDE’s stand received many visitors from international development networks, universities, media organisations, development consultancies, and other development actors. When visitors stopped at the stand, CPDE representatives introduced the platform’s work and spoke about the importance of partnering effectively with civil society to ensure robust recovery from the pandemic. They drew on CPDE’s comprehensive research study on the effectiveness of the COVID-19 response that was conducted in 2021. A QR code was displayed for visitors to easily access the study in English, Spanish or French.  The research study in question, World in Lockdown, Development on Hold: A special CPDE report on the (in)effectiveness of the Covid-19 response, gathers stories from communities bearing the brunt of the pandemic and face the risk of being further marginalised. These stories compiled by our member CSOs expose how measures taken to mitigate the impact of the pandemic have been used to silence critical voices and hinder civil society participation. #
