The changing cooperation environment ODA (at constant prices) from major donors should increase by more than 60 per cent over six years from 2004 to a total of USD 130 billion by 2010. So far, it has only risen by 15%. Non-DAC actors increasingly active, South-South and triangular co-operation are determine regional cooperation. Expansion of NGO/foundations and private sector actors Thematic funds, e.g. GFATM Expansion of funding instruments Expansion also at recipient country level, e.g. NGOs Business as usual.
The average number of donors per country is growing and aid delivery modalities are changing. 1960s2010
Experiences regarding the five Paris Principles Ownership (national development strategies): different definitions, conceptual inconsistencies, and understanding; tension between interpretations of government ownership and country ownership Alignment (quality of country systems, aid is on budget): with the government or alignment with the partner country; with policy/strategy or systems? Harmonisation (coordinated support for CD; parallel PIUs; untying aid; programme based approach; joined missions and analytic work): visibility vs. harmonised approach; ganging up? Management for Development Results (results-oriented frameworks): clarity on understanding; incentives and staff capacities; quick wins or CD Mutual Accountability (reviews of mutual performance, predictability ): to whom? And within what framework?
Emerging development effectiveness issues Context is vital (influence of political factors beyond technical) Commitment is uneven (Important effects of different levels of knowledge, engagement and commitment (HQ, field, politicians, lack of civil society engagement) Capacities are strained (Modest benefits of change are emerging, but the transaction costs and transition pains are greater) Incentives need to be reevaluated (political commitment needs reinforcement and sustainability; staff incentives) Partner countries need to be in charge of coordination (relationship between division of labour and ownership, use of country systems, predictability, conditionalities) South-South, triangular and decentralised cooperation are key.
The 2011 Paris Declaration Monitoring Survey will assess whether 2010 targets were met. 68 countries have confirmed their participation. The 2011 Paris Declaration Monitoring Survey UNDP and OECD/DAC, in cooperation with regional and other partners, are organising 5 regional workshops to support effective partner country leadership and participation in the 2011 Survey on Monitoring the Paris Declaration and initial preparations for the Forth High Level Forum in Korea, 2011.
The International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) Launched at the Accra HLF in 2008, IATI is a temporary coalition of donor governments, governments of developing countries and NGOs who agree with the “IATI Accra Statement” and are working together to implement the Accra Agenda for Action commitments on transparency. Bring together donors, partner countries, CSOs and aid information experts to agree ways of sharing more and better information about aid Commit donors to sharing more detailed, timely, and up-to-date information about aid Agree standards that will make information easier to understand, compare and use Make standards useful to all stakeholders Build on the standards and definitions that are already being used Meet transparency commitments in the Accra Agenda for Action
