Dialogues on International Development Cooperation
Dialogues on International Cooperation for Development
In light of the current world context, a consequence of Covid-19, the III Dialogues on International Cooperation for Development: Partnerships for Transformation will be postponed. New dates will be released in due time.
The Dialogues on International Cooperation for Development is an event organized by the BPC team, in collaboration with several partners, national and international. The “Dialogues” have two main goals:
- To foster policy dialogues on issues related to South-South and Triangular Co-operation among key stakeholders in government, international organizations, CSOs, think tanks and academia;
- To contribute to enhancing South-South and Triangular Co-operation to make them fit for implementing the 2030 Agenda.
The Third Edition, Partnerships for Transformation, will cover the following agenda:
I Dialogues: 2017 Edition
In January 2017, the BRICS Policy Center hosted the first Dialogues on International Development Co-operation, in collaboration with the Brazilian Cooperation Agency. The event was supported by Articulação Sul and sponsored by the Seoul Policy Center, DFID, FAPERJ and CNPq. In 2017, the “Dialogues on South-South Cooperation” focused on Monitoring and Evaluation and brought together South-South Co-operation (SSC) actors from twelve countries, as well as a significant number of Brazilian implementing agencies and international organizations. The event contributed to current national and international efforts to respond to the call of United Nations Member States in the Nairobi Outcome Document of 2009, as it recognizes that “the impact of South-South cooperation should be assessed with a view to improving, as appropriate, its quality in a results-oriented manner” (GA Resolution 64/222). Furthermore, the Dialogues on South-South Cooperation established a platform for multi-stakeholder conversations and learning on issues related to the implementation, results and evaluation of South-South and Triangular Co-operation. As a result of the “Dialogues” the BRICS Policy Center and Articulação Sul prepared the report “Paths for Developing South-South Cooperation M&E Systems” published by the Brazilian Cooperation Agency.

International development co-operation is at the forefront of the intensive mobilization and implementation efforts required by the 2030 Agenda. This year’s edition examines some of the types and modalities of international development co-operation and their contributions to the 2030 agenda. The event has been organized around the following agenda:
