Final meeting of the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness
The final meeting of the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness (WP-EFF) will be held at UNESCO in Paris. Since 2003, the WP-EFF has facilitated the aid effectiveness agenda and promoted major agreements for development co-operation such as the Paris Declaration (2005), the Accra Agenda for Action (2008) and the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation
(2011). This meeting will mark the end of an era and the beginning of a new one, with the end of the WP-EFF's mandate, and the creation of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation. This final meeting will define the working arrangements for this new inclusive space for dialogue, as well as the global indicators to monitor the agreements reached in Busan. CSOs have played a major role in the whole process being active supporters of the implementation of the aid and development effectiveness principles. They are represented by BetterAid, a platform for 1700 development CSOs.
