Title: UN SDGs and the Girls’ Health


This paper examines the shift towards a new global development cooperation paradigm at the Busan HLF-4; the new global partnership that emerged from Busan; and what South Korea brought to the global discourse on development cooperation as an emerging donor. The Busan HLF-4 and the post-Busan process have highlighted the global role of new actors, with South Korea exemplifying through its own experience how aid can help bring about development, contributing to the global discourse on development cooperation and playing a bridging role between traditional and emerging donors. The changing dynamics of the world including the global financial crisis and climate change suggest that the global challenges are different from what had been expected when the HLF process and Millennium Development Goals were begun in the beginning of the 20th century. Thus, we recommend that global development cooperation discourse and activities that had been led by traditional Western donors need to find more effective ways of incorporating new actors and different modalities of development cooperation because the global challenges we face are grave.


Busan HLF-4, development cooperation, Millennium Development Goals, South Korea

  1. Introduction

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) announced at the United Nations (UN) in 2001 and endorsed by nearly 200 nations around the world have been widely recognized as an important global cooperative paradigm to help solve one of the most enduring problems the world has faced—global poverty. The High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (HLF), which has been led by Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and other international organizations including the World Bank and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) since the beginning of the 21st century, has been regarded as one of the premier world forums to discuss how foreign aid, or development cooperation, can help address the problem of global poverty. The fourth and final HLF (HLF-4) was convened in Busan, South Korea. The goal was to assess aid effectiveness and to gather agreement around a new approach to development cooperation focused on development effectiveness.

In addition, private philanthropic foundations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, international non-governmental organizations, global corporate social responsibility of multinational corporations, and remittances have now come to play an increasing role in assisting developing countries (OECD, 2007). The global development cooperation arena, which had been dominated by a relatively small number of donors, has now become much more crowded with a greater diversity of players. Finally, partly as a result of the aforementioned forms of diverse forms of assistance to developing countries, there is increasing awareness that foreign aid should be considered as part of a larger stimulus package to developing countries, which includes foreign aid, foreign direct investment (FDI), trade and remittances (Kharas, 2012; Stallings, 2010).
