Efforts and Policies of the Members of the Development Assistance Committee

image of Development Co-operation Report 2002

Development results and aid effectiveness have moved to the centre of the development debate and all players are looking at a more results-oriented approach. OECD countries want assurance that they get value for their development donations. In partner countries, citizens are demanding better public expenditure management, including aid allocations, from their governments. Using the Millennium Development Goals as a common yard-stick, both donor and partner countries can measure, monitor and manage aid effectiveness by tracking the results of policies to ensure that they follow a logical chain to reach the desired results. The Development Assistance Committee is working with both its members and partners to improve aid policies and evaluate their implementation in the field. What works and why is examined through discussions with donors and partners to identify and adapt key lessons learned in the areas of accountability, evaluation and reporting for goals such as poverty reduction, public/private partnerships and water and sanitation services. The enormous challenge now will be to optimise these opportunities in order to make the joint efforts of donors and their partners more effective for people in developing countries.

Working for Development in Difficult Partnerships

There has been over recent years a growing awareness in the international community of the need for donors to stay engaged, despite the risks involved, even in countries where the DAC partnership model does not apply fully. The broad consensus shown at the 2002 DAC High Level Meeting in its discussion on development co-operation in difficult partnerships was a clear reflection of this new awareness. This section of the Report provides summaries of two recent DAC meetings on difficult partnerships, the first addressing the issue in a general way, the second focusing on the specific problems confronting the reconstruction and recovery effort in Afghanistan.
