COVID-19 International development Sustainable development

COVID-19 and the economic response have amplified and changed the nature of development challenges in fundamental ways. Global development cooperation should adapt accordingly.

This paper lays out the urgency for new methods of development cooperation that can deliver resource transfers at scale, oriented to addressing climate change and with transparency and better governance. It looks at what is actually happening to major donor countries’ development cooperation programs, where the principal gaps lie, and offers some thoughts for how to move forward, notwithstanding the clear geopolitical rivalries that are evident.
