In the midst of an evolving global governance, a new group of development providers
has quietly entered the stage. Complementing the traditional DAC donors and the big emerging economies, the CIVETS group
, which encompasses Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey and South Africa, brings a new wave of development partnerships that go beyond the rich-poor logic and promote South-South knowledge exchange and peer-to-peer learning
Although their financial resources are limited, this post-BRIC generation has strong potential to help reshape the global governance of development with fresh ideas and innovative models
, especially in the area of South-South cooperation. Over the next months, the scope and quality of development policy decisions also depends on the role that the CIVETS countries will play at the G20, United Nations (UN) and Development Assistance Committee (DAC) levels.
