DATE: 15-16 April 2014

VENUE: Mexico City, Mexico

SETUP: A preliminary agenda is now online at the Global Partnership website. The meeting will consist of a number of plenary sessions and 35 “focus sessions” organized by various participants.

PARTICIPANTS: The Mexican Government looks forward to hosting up to 1500 participants from the international development community, including representatives from national and subnational governments, parliaments, international organisations, civil society organisations, foundations, and the private sector. National delegations are invited to register up to five participants, and government ministries are highly encouraged to include other national stakeholders in their delegation, particularly parliamentarians. There are a differentiated number of allocated delegation spaces for different stakeholders, depending on the needs of the Conference and limited exclusively by the capacity of the venue.

THEMES:

PLENARY 1: PROGRESS SINCE BUSAN

Progress   on implementing key principles   of effective development co-operation.

Working with and for all,  being more transparent, ensuring developing countries are in the lead, and    focusing on results are all key to making sure that all types of development     cooperation have real and sustainable impact on the ground.

 

This     session will review progress and take new steps to boost impact of the     commitments made at the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness   in 2011.   The session will also look at ways to promote inclusive   development

PLENARY 2: PARTNERING FOR EFFECTIVE TAXATION   AND DOMESTIC RESOURCE MOBILISATION FOR DEVELOPMENT

Tax   and development.

No country should  be dependent on   others’ resources for its own development. Developed and   developing   countries must work together to boost domestic resource   mobilisation.

 

In this session,   leaders will agree on   ways to step up and support existing development   co-operation to boost   tax collection, cut illicit financial flows and   strengthen policies   that support inclusive development, building on recent   progress on   these issues.

PLNARY 3: SOUTH-SOUTH, TRIANGULAR CO-OPERATION   AND KNOWLEDGE-SHARING

Delivering   development effectively in   middle-income countries.

As the home of nearly 75% of the     world’s poor, ‘middle-income’ countries face complex development challenges     of reducing inequality while at the same time fueling sustained   economic   growth.

 

In this session     leaders will exchange practical ideas on targeted and differentiated     strategies of development co-operation that can deliver poverty reduction and     inclusive growth in middle-income countries in an effective, sustainable   way.

PLENARY 4: DEVELOPMENT CO-OPERATION WITH   MIDDLE-INCOME COUNTRIES

Knowledge   sharing, South-South and   triangular co-operation.

Country-led co-operation and mutual     learning among developing countries can accelerate development. Some of this     support comes in the form of knowledge – which is prized because it is   based   on recent, concrete experience.

 

In this session,     leaders will showcase and discuss ways to scale up country-led development     co-operation including with a view to implement the post-2015   development   agenda.

PLENARY 5: BUSINESS AS A PARTNER IN   DEVELOPMENT

Improving   the role of business in   development.  

There is no longer a question of whether   business can affect development. The   question is how to ensure   business has a stronger positive impact on driving   progress.

 

In this final but     critical session, leaders will share some of the most innovative and dynamic     examples of how this positive impact is being delivered, and take   action to   do more.

 

BACKGROUND: Over   1300 development leaders will join Enrique Peña Nieto, President of Mexico,   UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría in   Mexico City to:

  • review global progress in making   development co-operation more effective;
  • agree on actions to boost progress;   and,
  • anchor effective development   co-operation in the post-2015 global development agenda.

The   leaders who will come together in Mexico City include heads of state and   government, ministers, parliamentarians and leaders from international   organisations, business, civil society and foundations.

The   Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) deadline of 2015 is fast approaching.   Phenomenal gains have been made, yet poverty still afflicts one in seven   people around the world – and one in eight still go to bed hungry.

The   first Global Partnership High-Level Meeting will reaffirm the importance of   effective development co-operation in meeting the MDGs and as a key part of   the ‘how’ of the next global development framework.
