High-Level Symposium in preparation for the 2014 ECOSOC Development Cooperation Forum (DCF)

Berlin, Germany
20 - 21 March, 2014

To advance the dialogue on development cooperation, the Government of Germany and UN DESA are organizing a High-Level Symposium in preparation for the 2014 ECOSOC Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) on ôAccountable and effective development cooperation in a post-2015 eraö on 20-21 March in Berlin, Germany.

The Symposium will provide an opportunity to explore how to engage the diverse range of development actors in a monitoring and accountability framework for development cooperation for the post-2015 era. This will include the assessment of how lessons learned on enhancing the impact of development cooperation can be reflected in the post-2015 development agenda. The Symposium will build on key messages from the Ethiopia and Switzerland symposia and analytical work by UN DESA on mutual accountability and effectiveness of development cooperation.

The Symposium will make a contribution to the discussion on how a renewed global partnership for development can be implemented in a more coherent, effective and legitimate manner. Key messages from the Symposium will contribute to the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals and the Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing. The key messages of the symposium will also inform the discussions at the first ministerial meeting of the Busan Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation, which in turn will present its outcome to the 2014 DCF.

170 High-level participants from national and local governments, civil society organizations and academia, parliaments, foundations and the private sector and multilateral organizations are confirmed to attend the Symposium.
