DAC global relations

Arab-DAC Dialogue on Development, 18 January 2016, Vienna


The year 2015 will go down in history as an exceptional year for the international community. Agreements were being reached on financing for development (the Addis Ababa Action Agenda), on the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and on tackling climate change. The Arab-DAC Dialogue on Development was one of the first events in 2016 to bring together high‑level representatives from a range of bilateral and multilateral providers of development co-operation to discuss how to support achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The event focused on development finance and partnerships, and on thematic collaboration around energy access in Sub-Saharan Africa and on the role of the private sector in fragile, at-risk and conflict affected states. The Dialogue enabled both communities to identify opportunities for collaboration and to agree on next steps and joint actions.
