Civil Society and Aid Effectiveness

Findings, Recommendations and Good Practice

In the Accra Agenda for Action (2008), donors and developing country governments commit to deepening their engagement with civil society organisations (CSOs). Better aid requires a broader understanding of the aid effectiveness agenda and a place for CSOs as development actors in their own right and as aid donors, recipients and partners. This book is a resource for implementing the recommendations on civil society and aid effectiveness emerging from the Accra High Level Forum and its preparatory process. These recommendations address a broad community, including developing country governments, donors, and CSOs from developing and developed countries.

What are CSOs and what makes them different? This book defines CSOs as nonmarket and non-state organisations outside of the family in which people organise themselves to pursue shared interests in the public domain. The emphasis in this book is on CSOs characterised by relationships of social solidarity with marginalised populations and concern for social justice. CSOs fill a number of significant roles as development actors and as aid donors, channels and recipients. The Advisory Group on Civil Society and Aid Effectiveness recommends formal recognition of the importance and diversity of CSOs and proposes that CSOs be brought systematically into the development and aid policy dialogue.
