The fifth biennial meeting of the Development Cooperation Forum will advance global dialogue on development cooperation in the era of the new global sustainable development agenda. The high-level meeting will take place at United Nations Headquarters in New York on 21-22 July 2016, as part of the High-level Segment of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

The Meeting will make an important contribution to the review of progress on the 2030 Agenda, in particular on the global partnership for sustainable development and mobilization of financing and other means of implementation.

Based on an extensive preparatory process and the 2016 Secretary-General’s Report on trends in development cooperation, the 2016 DCF will aim to generate a shared understanding of the role and scope of development cooperation, through peer learning and knowledge sharing.
