The world has entered a new era defined by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which require significant efforts and resources to deliver. Meanwhile, the world is witnessing the changes in the global financial landscape, characterized by the “age of choice” as manifested in the emergence of new goals, new donors and new financial tools in scope and magnitude. At the core of these trends lies the increasing emphasis on effectiveness of development cooperation in terms of partnership and finance, which is to be realized through reinforced country ownership, growing interest of and commitment from the private sector to development, as well as good policies and institutions that enable diversified means of development cooperation, and ensure inclusion. Against this backdrop, China is rising in the global economic governance system, bringing alternative thinking and practices in delivering development cooperation. The presentation aims to provide an overview of the global trends in development cooperation, as well as UNDP’s approaches to facilitate effectiveness of China’s “going-out”.
The lunch talk is organized by the Fudan-European Centre for China Studies, NIAS – Nordic Institute for Asian Studies and ADI – Asian Dynamics Initiative.
