Aid Effectiveness 2011

Progress in Implementing the Paris Declaration

image of Aid Effectiveness 2011
For the most part, the findings are clear: while many donors and partner country governments have made significant progress towards the targets that they set themselves for 2010, few of them have been met. Partner country authorities appear to have gone further in implementing their commitments under the Paris Declaration than donors, though efforts – and progress – also vary significantly across countries and donor organisations.

As the international community takes stock of what has been achieved on the occasion of the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, Korea (29 November to 1 December 2011), this report sets out evidence of progress and challenges in making aid more effective. This evidence should help forge a consensus beyond Busan that aid – and its effectiveness –represents only one element of a broader landscape of development finance and joint efforts to make aid more effective can and should inform a broader development effectiveness agenda.

Experience in monitoring the effectiveness of aid

Why monitor aid effectiveness? How was the 2011 Survey on Monitoring the Paris Declaration conducted, and who participated in the process? What other initiatives have contributed to a growing global evidence base of what works and what does not to help make aid more effective? This chapter answers these questions, highlighting the importance of monitoring the effectiveness of aid as a means of strengthening learning and supporting accountability. Since its inception in 2005, the international framework used to monitor the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness has been applied in a growing number of countries, and has also informed the development of a number of complementary initiatives which are outlined in this chapter.
