Call for Contributions – 2016 Global Synthesising Research

The CSO Partnership for Development Effectivness (CPDE) is currently implementing the three-year programme Civil Society Continuing Campaign for Effective Development that aims to promote development effectiveness through concrete CSO action, utilising a mix of approaches in policy advocacy, engagement, outreach and capacity development at global, regional, sub-regional and national levels. The said programme will end in 2016.

In line with this, IBON International, as the Fiscal Sponsor of the Action, will conduct the 2016 Global Synthesising Research as the end-line research for the three-year programme. It aims to take stock of the progress of implementing effective development co-operation in the different global regions and sectors.

The research will have as its focus the current status of Unfinished or Core Business, or the commitments made at the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, the Accra Agenda for Action and the Busan Partnership for Effective Development. It builds upon the findings of the 2014-2015 CPDE Global Synthesising Research which focused on Development Cooperation, CSO Enabling Environment and CSO Development Effectiveness.

Contributions by organisations from different global regions and sectors would be in the form of country case reports. The research output will provide evidence in the anticipated engagement of the CPDE in the Second High Level Ministerial (HLM2) of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC). CPDE is planning to release the research output in time for the HLM2.

These, among other important details, could be found in the concept note. It further elaborates the main focus of the research and discusses guidelines for writing country reports. A timeline is also included at the end of the document.

For organisations that wish to contribute, please contact Rodolfo Lahoy ( with copy to Jennifer Malonzo ( and Jodel Dacara ( until Friday, September 2, 2016. You could also contact the same for concerns and questions.
