Depending on the focus areas and respective perspectives to be engaged, the GPF supports its partners through a variety of ways, including:

  • Curating an appropriate format, developing thematic priorities and strategic timing
  • Facilitating high-level speaker participation
  • Driving impact through coalition-building and strategic partnerships
  • Positioning GPF members as speakers at high-level roundtables and international conferences

What are the formats?

Global and Regional Summits: Flagship Conferences and Forums that bring together a large group of stakeholders to engage on specific topics with a high degree of audience interaction.

Strategic Dialogues and Workshops provide an opportunity for knowledge sharing on a common subject from which stronger understanding and more focused partnerships can emerge. Dialogues raise awareness, support consensus building, and encourage informed action.

Clinics and Salons provide an interactive platform to showcase cutting-edge projects, where members share ideas on partnerships, and discuss innovations and best practice.

Communities of Practice (CoPs) provide a platform to a group of people who interact regularly on a common topic of shared interest with the goal of learning from one another or consensus building on certain policy issues.
