SLM, CPDE, Senior Level Meeting,CSO

July 12 to 15, 2019

New York City, United States


The First Senior Level Meeting (SLM) of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC) will be held from July 13 to 14 at the UN Headquarters in New York. This year’s SLM is happening at the sidelines of the UN High Level Political Forum. With the theme Addressing How We Work Together, For More Sustainable Development Outcomes, the SLM will contribute the implementation of the 2030 Agenda over the next decade.


The SLM is an important milestone for the GPEDC to sustain momentum on effectiveness agenda and to showcase the completed work and outcomes of the GPEDCs 2017-2018 Work Programme.  Holding the SLM during the weeks of the HLPF is intended also to raise the profile of GPEDC within UN circles.


CPDE has been actively engaged in all aspects of the GPEDCs work.  This includes in its governance structure, in the implementation of its Work Programme, in the rollout of the monitoring framework, in the Global Partnership initiatives and activities at the national level.  The SLM will showcase all of these initiatives and CPDE will participate in a manner equal to its involvement in the GPEDC as a whole.
