Development Cooperation Effectiveness

What is it for?
Implementing the principles of development cooperation effectiveness at the local level means to facilitate the alignment and harmonization of development actors. This strengthens development results where it matters most – and where it impacts people’s lives. Local level development cooperation practices to implement the SDGs may feed back into the global agenda. They can allow the application of lessons, providing much-needed evidence for more effective policies.

What do the tools help achieve?
Using cooperation results frameworks at the local level prevents proliferation of isolated development initiatives and increases alignment, harmonization, accountability and transparency.
