The paradigm of the development cooperation has been changing over the past decade, becoming further diverse and complex with new and various development actors. Against this backdrop, the role of partnership, not least ‘inclusive partnership’, which embraces all the development actors, has become even more critical in implementing the Post-2015 development agenda. This year, the theme of discussion is ‘Inclusive Global Partnership’, especially focusing on the new forms of inclusive partnerships and how to promote better in the Post-2015 development framework.
