Better Partnerships for a Post-2015 World

image of Multilateral Aid 2015

This 2015 OECD report on multilateral aid contributes to the broader debate on how to implement the post-2015 development agenda. It argues that multilateral organisations have a fundamental role to play to forge and strengthen inclusive partnerships that will provide the collective, cross-border solutions needed to eradicate absolute poverty and foster a new era of economic progress, environmental sustainability, and peaceful and inclusive societies. But to be fit for purpose, multilateral organisations will need to implement a challenging reform agenda to both address the unfinished business of internal changes and respond to a fast-changing global environment.

Multilateral Aid 2015 identifies how bilateral providers can support multilateral organisations in implementing the necessary changes and fostering effective partnerships that (i) make best use of all resources available for development, including earmarked funding, and (ii) leverage knowledge and resources from partners beyond the “traditional donors”.

DAC members' useof the multilateral system

This chapter examines recent developments and structural differences in DAC countries’ funding to multilateral organisations. It describes how DAC countries articulate their engagement with multilateral organisations in their policy documents, and compares their stated reasons for partnering with multilateral organisations against actual allocation patterns. The chapter discusses decision-making on multilateral allocations and provides evidence concerning the predictability and volatility of DAC members’ funding to multilateral organisations. The chapter also investigates the proliferation of bilateral assessments of multilateral organisations and suggests ways to ensure the accountability of multilateral spending in a more cost-efficient and effective manner. It gives providers recommendations to foster policies and funding practices that support effective delivery by multilateral organisations in the post-2015 era.
