Asia-Pacific Effective Development Co-operation Report 2014
The report presents evidence-based analysis drawing on countries’ data and experiences compiled from existing country and regional studies and analytical work. It provides a snapshot of the changing development and financing landscape in the region. It recognizes and captures the diversity of roles of different development actors – from government, international institutions, civil society and the business community. It includes a synthesis of the findings from the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC) global survey for fifteen countries from Asia-Pacific; key findings, conclusions and recommendations from Development Finance and Aid Assessments in Papua New Guinea and Viet Nam, as well as Policy, Expenditure and Institutional Reviews in Indonesia and Thailand; and the outcomes of regional consultations held in advance of the first High-Level Meeting (HLM) of the GPEDC.
The Asia-Pacific country and regional perspectives and practical measures highlighted in this report are expected to ensure an evidence-based global discussion on ‘how’ countries can achieve the ‘what’ which will be expressed in the post-2015 sustainable development agenda – ending poverty and leaving no one behind.
