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.

Harmonisation of donor practices

The Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness recognised that the multitude of donor approaches to providing and managing aid could result in unnecessary duplication of efforts and a greater burden on partner countries that have to deal with a wide range of policies and procedures. The Accra Agenda for Action went further by committing donors and developing countries to work together to reduce aid fragmentation both within and across developing countries. Have donors made progress in working with each other? To what extent have the commitments on the use of common arrangements, the co-ordination of technical co-operation, donor missions and analytic works set out in the Paris Declaration and Accra Agenda for Action been implemented? Have donors made efforts to reduce the fragmentation of aid, including through the adoption of an appropriate division of labour at both the country and global levels? This chapter offers answers to these questions, drawing on the results of the 2011 Survey on Monitoring the Paris Declaration.
