For the past year, CPDE sought ways to navigate through the maze of carving civil space in the eve of the adoption of the new United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) Post-2015, demanding that commitments to Official Development Assistance (ODA) are met, pushing for accountability of all stakeholders in exacting development, most especially accountability of the private sector and state actors, continuously engaging in multi-stakeholder dialogues to influence discussions on development policies even as CSO spaces are shrinking, and pushing the agenda of effective development and cooperation in various advocacy arenas beyond the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC).
As a platform, CPDE reached out to sectors and other development actors through information and resource sharing. Leadership was actively shared as more opportunities for learning and contributing to processes were encouraged within the platform. Aside from discussing challenges, members sought ways to learn from each other and share best practices and other processes. We are grateful to all who travel with us on this journey and supported us in different ways. This report speaks to what CPDE has accomplished in the face of trying conditions and complex structures to bring to the fore the contributions and potentials of people and partnerships from all over the globe.
