At the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE) Policy Conference 2019 held in Beirut, CSOs tackled emerging issues surrounding development cooperation and affirmed their commitment to advocate for and contribute towards achieving development effectiveness. The discussions culminated in the adoption of an outcome document, the Beirut Declaration: Upholding Accountability, Building Solidarity for Effective, People-Centred Development. A total of 50 CSOs coming from six regions – Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, and the Pacific – and eight sectors – Faith-based Organisations, Labour, Rural, International CSOs, Indigenous Peoples, Youth, and Migrants – adopted the declaration, which underlines the major issues in the development cooperation and the actions that need to be fulfilled by the governments and other development actors.
