The 2030 Agenda demands new types of partnerships, summoning all actors to join in furthering sustainable development. While governments have the principle role of coordinating and leading development efforts, all actors and beneficiaries need to be meaningfully engaged. This brings better and more sustainable results from development efforts in general and development cooperation in particular and it supports country strategies that leave no one behind. This session addresses ways to support effective participation of diverse actors in development cooperation and to maximize opportunities at different levels. Discussion will focus on how to leverage comparative advantages of different stakeholders – including local authorities, civil society and private sector – and develop policy and legal frameworks to effectively engage them at the local, regional and global levels. Session 3 Getting better results for sustainable development: the role of National Development Cooperation Policies The 2016 DCF called for National Development Cooperation Policies that work to promote a nationally led and owned implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Participants will have opportunity to exchange experiences with adjusting, or putting in place, national development cooperation policies. What has been the effect so far in mobilizing and aligning development cooperation efforts with national development priorities and bringing greater coherence? The session will begin with a brief introduction in plenary, followed by three parallel dialogues in smaller-group settings, each featuring presentations sharing experience of country governments as well as members of Parliament, private sector and civil society. 28th Plenary - ECOSOC High-level Meeting of the Development Cooperation Forum http://webtv.un.org/watch/28th-plenary-ecosoc-high-level-meeting-of-the-development-cooperation-forum/5787773160001 The session will set the scene for the discussions at the 2018 DCF.
