Civil Society and Aid Effectiveness

Findings, Recommendations and Good Practice

image of Civil Society and Aid Effectiveness

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.

The documents constituting this volume drew on national, regional, and international consultations sponsored by the Advisory Group on Civil Society and Aid Effectiveness (AG-CS) in the 18 months preceding the Accra High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in September 2008. Over 5 000 individuals and 3 600 organisations participated in these various consultations. Results came together in the International Forum on Civil Society and Effectiveness in Gatineau, Canada, in February 2008, and were incorporated in the Synthesis of Findings and Recommendations.
