Managing Aid

Practices of DAC Member Countries

image of Managing Aid

Development co-operation donors are held accountable for the way they manage aid and the development results they achieve. They want to see more partner country ownership, greater use of partner country systems, and work better together. This involves decentralising responsibility, concentrating efforts, managing for results, creating new systems, changing staff profiles, and building capacity in donor and partner countries. This book outlines what individual donors are doing to fulfil their development co-operation ambitions and their part of the international agreements – reached in Paris in 2005 (Paris Declaration) and Accra in 2008 (Accra Agenda for Action) – to make aid more effective.

Managing Cross-sectoral Issues

Poverty reduction, gender equality, good governance, environmental sustainability, capacity development, HIV/AIDS and human rights cut across all sectors. Addressing these issues is critical to making aid more effective and achieving enduring impacts. While almost all DAC members have cross-sectoral policies, only a few have the staff, budgets and management practices needed to implement them. Bridging the gap between cross-sectoral policy and implementation is critical.
