An important function of the CPG is to connect partners with a common interest in fostering coherence in the implementation of the global agendas at national and subnational level. The group works towards a greater shared understanding of practical coherence among international, regional and national development partners and to advocate for synergies and maximise opportunities for collaboration (e.g. co-organise events, leveraging and pooling funds). This informal group is committed to reaching out to as many relevant institutions as possible and will use every opportunity to engage in inter-agency dialogue on coherence.
