Over the past few years, international relations have undergone important changes that have contributed to a complexification of the global governance system. The set of factors that contributed to this – along with a pandemic with terrible effects and disproportionate impacts on different countries – has, indeed, profound consequences in the process of designing development cooperation programs.

Over the past few months, the Portuguese NGDO Platform has promoted a wide-ranging dialogue with dozens of Civil Society Organizations based on the study “The Future of International Cooperation for Development: Fragmentation, adaptation and innovation in a changing world”, by Ana Luísa Silva, Luís Pais Bernardo and Luís Mah, published by the Portuguese NGDO Platform.

This process culminates today in the “Development Cooperation: trends and perspectives” Webinar, which marks the launch of the study and the paper “Development Cooperation: A Civil Society view on a changing sector”, a document that seeks to feed the debate on the future of development policies around three main axis: the importance of an integrated, coherent and people-centered approach; the importance of genuine partnerships in the promotion of Democracy, Human Rights and Sustainable Development; and the EU’s role in mobilizing financing for development and for a fair and sustainable recovery.
