This is a joint publication between the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). It presents the results of the 2018 Monitoring Round of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation (GPEDC) and consists of i) an Overview of Headline Results, ii) Part I on how partner countries are putting in place the building blocks for an effective, whole-of-society development effort; and iii) Part II on how development partners are promoting effective, country-led partnerships.  

The basis for this work is data collected by 86 partner countries and territories, in collaboration with more than 100 development partners. Generating evidence on the implementation of the agreed principles of effective development co-operation – country ownership; focus on results; inclusive partnerships; and transparency and mutual accountability – the work demonstrates where progress has been made and where challenges remain, thus informing how governments and their partners can strengthen collective action towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
