A Roadmap for Improving Performance on Aid Effectiveness and Promoting Effective Development - Turning Commitments Into Action


In 2011, six years after the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness was agreed in 2005, the fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness will assemble in Busan, Korea to decide the principles and commitments that will govern development assistance in coming years. It will review the achievements of the Paris Declaration, and perhaps launch a successor agreement.

When delegates meet in Busan, one question will be at the top of their minds: have donors met the Paris targets on aid effectiveness ? The latest available data (Figure 1) provides some of the answers: in 2007, most development agencies, including the African Development Bank (AfDB or Bank), were not on track.
