This is a recording from the live event, 15 April, 8:00am -- 9:15am, in Centro Banamex Convention Centre in Mexico City. The event was a part of the First High-Level Meeting of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation.

Along with the Global Partnership process, the New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States is a defining feature of the Busan Outcome Document. Together, they call for new actions in the way development cooperation is organized and delivered. The New Deal focuses on the specific development challenges and opportunities faced by countries affected by conflict and fragility. It calls for greater focus on key priorities to build peaceful states, the Peace-and State-building Goals, and for a marked shift on how such priorities are realized at the country as well as at the global level.

The International Dialogue on Peace- and State-building, which produced the New Deal is the forum that brings together leaders, civil society representatives, and other relevant actors from the g7+ group of conflict affected and fragile states and development partners committed to drive change through the New Deal. This has universal importance. Conflict and fragility are trans-continental risks, affecting people in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Latin America, Europe and elsewhere At the same time, looking towards 2015 and beyond, effective partnerships and more targeted and decisive action to address conflict and fragility are needed to eradicate extreme poverty, enable sustainable growth and to better manage the environment.
