Date of commitment:

Millennium Development Goal: 


In July 2014, the United Nations Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) met under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), to discuss the future of development cooperation. During this meeting, it was agreed that a renewed global partnership for development will be an imperative mechanism for mobilizing financing and other means of implementation to support a post-2015 development agenda. The Forum also stated that more and better ODA will be needed in the financing mix, and that South-South Cooperation will be an important complement to traditional North-South cooperation
