The High Level Meeting (HLM) is a formal, ministerial-level meeting of DAC members and observers to advance the global agenda on key development issues.
The HLM 2020 was held virtually on 9 and 10 November. On the first day, the launch of a new OECD report, the “Global Outlook on Financing for Sustainable Development 2021”, kick-started a broad discussion on the consequences of the massive drop in global development finance, and how providers of development co-operation should respond.
The second day considered discussion on (i) priority actions to help partner countries build back better and greener amidst the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, and (ii) how DAC members can deliver better on their commitments in the years ahead.
Members of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) have issued following Communiqué.
