The Revised Bank Group Action Plan on Harmonization
There is growing consensus among regional member countries (RMCs) and the donor community that the totality and variety of donor processes, procedures, and requirements for development assistance delivery, monitoring, and reporting is generating unproductive and avoidable transaction costs for, and depleting the scarce capacity of, member countries. More importantly, it undermines development effectiveness by diverting limited national resources and managerial talent1 . Shrinking ODA levels and limited impact on the ground over several years compels both aid recipient donors to critically examine how aid delivery and management detracts from development impact, and to find ways of working well together towards more and better resources, and improved impact.
