CLOSER COOPERATION NEEDED FOR COVID-19 RESPONSE


ARAB COORDINATION GROUP C


loser cooperation is needed to help developing countries respond


to the COVID-19 pandemic – this was the message from the 86th Meeting of the Coordination Group’s Heads of Operations, hosted recently by the OPEC Fund. The two-day virtual event enabled participants to exchange knowledge on issues including improving development cooperation and effectiveness, the Arab Development Portal – which promotes open data, access to information, and informed decision-making in the Arab region – and the response to COVID-19 in developing countries. Earlier this year, the Coordination Group allocated US$10 billion to support COVID-19 responses in developing countries. OPEC Fund Director-General Dr Abdulhamid Alkhalifa said: “Since its establishment more than forty years ago, the Coordination Group has made


38


far-reaching steps in the field of joint development work. This is a source of pride for all of us. Nevertheless, we must not be content with what we have achieved, but instead strive for more cooperation and adapt effectively to the changing environment.” Dr Alkhalifa explained that the


Coordination Group and other international development institutions have intensified efforts to help developing countries respond to the “unprecedented situation” and called for a “strengthening and deepening” of the partnership among Coordination Group institutions and between the Coordination Group and other development finance institutions worldwide.


Also participating in the virtual meeting to discuss cooperation were representatives of the World Bank and the International Fund for Agricultural Development.





Since its establish- ment more than 40 years ago, the Coordination Group has made far-reaching steps in the field of joint development work. This is a source of pride for all of us.
