Development Partners

 

 

Development Partners Group (DPG) is to promote effective development dialogue, cooperation and coordination in support of national development priorities. Membership is open to all bilateral and multilateral development partners, including international/regional financial institutions providing development support to Bhutan.

The main objective of the DPG is to strengthen the government’s efforts in improving the impact, effectiveness, and coherence of the development cooperation through enhanced coordination for development results. This is expected to be achieved by:

  • Substantively engaging—within the development partner community and other relevant stakeholders—in development policy dialogue on national development priorities and emerging development challenges;
  • Promoting greater level of information sharing among DPG members (Link to knowledge documents under Bhutan Dialogue);
  • Promoting the use of joint evaluation missions and field visits whenever possible; and
  • Working together on common projects, events, and advocacy.
