Paris. The third meeting of the PBIG took place on 21-22 May in Paris. It marked the final stretch of the Group’s work to negotiate proposals for the governance and monitoring framework of the GPEDC, which was to be presented to the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness (WP-EFF) for agreement in its final plenary meeting on June 28-29. It was at the third meeting of the PBIG that members endorsed parliamentary representation on the Steering Committee of the Global Partnership and asked the IPU- as the most global representative parliamentary institution- to nominate a representative. IPU and AWEPA continue to cooperate closely/share representational responsibilities within the work of the Steering Committee.
