The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (the Global Partnership or GPEDC) is the primary multi-stakeholder platform for driving development effectiveness to “maximize the effectiveness of all forms of co-operation for development for the shared benefits of people, planet, prosperity and peace.” Under Action Area 2.7 of the work programme, on ‘Effective Multilateral Support’, members of this working group work towards accomplishing two main ‘results-based’ expectations, which are making:
(i) a substantive multi-stakeholder contribution to the global discourse on an effective multilateral system;
(ii) a substantive multi-stakeholder contribution on how partners can effectively support multilateralism.
Duties and Responsibilities
SCOPE OF WORK, RESPONSIBILITIES AND DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED ANALYTICAL WORK:
The objective is to frame an understanding of ‘effective’ donorship to multilateral organizations by way of the effectiveness principles, with a focus on how this practice is urgently needed to accomplish the SDGs in the 8 years remaining until 2030. The purpose of is to produce a relevant and insightful written report that assesses how donors support the multilateral system, and how this aligns with the effectiveness principles.
The report will be structured in connection to four key considerations/chapters, each building on the last: (i) understanding effective donorship – defining effective donorship via the principles, based on a literature review; (ii) committing to effective donorship – an interview-based analysis of why donors commit to effective practices; (iii) executing effective donorship – again interview-based, focused on mechanisms/policies (core contributions, multi-year commitments, etc.) donors use to ensure effective support; and finally (iv) on the value of the multilateral system – building on the content above, to explore the policy-value different partners place on the system, and what draws them to work with the system (circling back to the principles).
Core literature for the literature review on effective donorship via the principles:
