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.

A distinguishing feature of the process leading up to the Third High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness held in Accra from 2-4 September 2008 (HLF-3), and of the Accra Agenda for Action (AAA) emerging from that process, was the degree of importance accorded to civil society. Civil society organisations (CSOs) were actively involved, and the AAA contains numerous references to civil society and citizen participation.
