Working together for climate resilience – Challenges and success factors for collaboration between technical and financial partners in development cooperation

Development as such is already complex. Development in line with all or most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Paris Agreement, Nationally DeterminedContributions (NDCs), National Adaptation Plans (NAPs) and country- or sector-specific objectives and frameworks is immensely challenging. International technical and financial cooperation can support countries and subnational entities such as cities, states and provinces, in developing capacities andaccessing finance for development. The results of such cooperation are likely to be best if organisations work hand in hand to ensure effective and efficient use of available resources. However, actors in development cooperation often have heterogeneous andsometimes competing strategic perspectives, institutional set-ups and aid instruments, translating into high management costs for recipient governments. Acknowledging previous and on-going discussions on aid effectiveness, this working paper seeks to shed light on challenges and entry points for practical collaborationbetween technical and financial development partners in projects on the ground.
