Aid Effectiveness

A Progress Report on Implementing the Paris Declaration

image of Aid Effectiveness
The 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness defines the principles and commitments by which donors and developing countries intend to ensure that aid is as effective as possible in contributing to the Millennium Development Goals and other internationally agreed development objectives. This report is a mid-term review of progress towards these commitments, drawing on the 2008 Paris Declaration Monitoring Survey and the Evaluation Synthesis Report among many other sources.

Part I highlights the main actionable lessons and messages emerging from the analysis of progress to date. Part II covers the commitments under the five Partnership Principles related to ownership, alignment, harmonisation, development results and mutual accountability, together with four subjects of critical relevance: sector perspectives, the role of civil society organisations, situations of fragility and conflict, and the changing aid architecture.

The Roles of Civil Society Organisations in Making Aid Effective

As well as providing services and funding development, this chapter highlights how civil society organisations (CSOs) are fundamental to good governance and accountability to citizens. CSOs were only included to a very limited degree in the preparatory processes for the first and second High-Level Forums in Rome and Paris, but the greater recognition now of the multiple linkages between CSOs and the aid effectiveness agenda led to the establishment of the Advisory Group on Civil Society and Aid Effectiveness, and to the participation of CSOs as central players in the 2008 HLF.
