Development Co-operation Report 2002

Efforts and Policies of the Members of the Development Assistance Committee

Development results and aid effectiveness have moved to the centre of the development debate and all players are looking at a more results-oriented approach. OECD countries want assurance that they get value for their development donations. In partner countries, citizens are demanding better public expenditure management, including aid allocations, from their governments. Using the Millennium Development Goals as a common yard-stick, both donor and partner countries can measure, monitor and manage aid effectiveness by tracking the results of policies to ensure that they follow a logical chain to reach the desired results. The Development Assistance Committee is working with both its members and partners to improve aid policies and evaluate their implementation in the field. What works and why is examined through discussions with donors and partners to identify and adapt key lessons learned in the areas of accountability, evaluation and reporting for goals such as poverty reduction, public/private partnerships and water and sanitation services. The enormous challenge now will be to optimise these opportunities in order to make the joint efforts of donors and their partners more effective for people in developing countries.

Hide / Show Abstract

Enhancing the effectiveness of aid to promote sustainable development is an essential challenge to meet in order to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. Work in the Development Assistance Committee is thus focusing closely on the issue of aid effectiveness. This section of the Report provides an overview of DAC work in the area, emphasising the linkages between the aid effectiveness agenda and the work plans of the DAC subsidiary bodies.
