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.

Policy Coherence for Development

Successful poverty reduction requires mutually supportive policies across a wide range of economic, social, and environmental issues. OECD ministers reaffirmed this in 2008 when they adopted the Declaration on Policy Coherence for Development. In the globalised economy, events in one country may have an impact far beyond its borders, and neglecting the development dimension can, in time, undermine the pursuit of other objectives. Making progress towards sustainable and broad-based development requires that countries better understand and manage the political economy of globalisation. Policy coherence is an important part of this process.
