A long way from Monterrey to Addis: Placing an effective global partnership at the heart of development processes
CSO-Partnership Position Paper, May 2015
It is time for the international community to fully operationalise the paradigm shift towards country leadership in development. There can be no national responsibility without national democratic ownership of the development processes and without the global policy space that can allow each country to set its own path to development. Country leadership means proper inclusive development processes at the national level to engage all stakeholders, from civil society organisations to trade unions, from local authorities to parliamentarians and the domestic private sector.
