"In the run up to the second High Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Development Effectiveness (GPEDC) at the end of 2016, it is timely to carry out an assessment of the level of support and recognition that the effectiveness agenda still generates at different levels. Understanding the traction that the effectiveness agenda has among International Non-Governmental Organisations (INGOs) may be instrumental in mobilizing renewed interest in the light of the challenges stemming from the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. This short study summarises the findings and conclusions of a self-assessment of the level of support from the INGO community for the development effectiveness agenda. It takes place within the activity framework of the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE) INGO constituency group and is part of a broader global reflection by CPDE on CSO effectiveness. The study aims to increase CPDE’s understanding of how development effectiveness principles, as applied to civil society, are reflected in the way INGOs function, both internally and externally and in particular at local level in the countries where they operate."
