OECD and the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation
June 2012 saw the launch of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation – an inclusive international forum anchored in the commitments made at HLF4. The OECD and the DAC will support the work of the Global Partnership in a number of ways:
- The DAC will continue to support its members as they design and implement policies and practices to improve the effectiveness of development co-operation.
- The DAC will engage others – as equal partners – in dialogue and efforts to share knowledge on development co-operation.
- With the support of the DAC, the OECD is partnering with UNDP to support the effective functioning of the Global Partnership. This will draw on the OECD’s global perspective and in-house analytic capacities.
Building a comprehensive aid effectiveness agenda
From 2003 to 2012 the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness (WP-EFF) promoted the better use of aid resources for more inclusive development. The WP-EFF, hosted by the OECD-DAC, brought together a large number of developing and developed countries, south-south providers, multilateral organisations, civil society and parliamentarian organisations. The WP-EFF provided the main substance for discussion at the high level fora on aid effectivenessin Paris (2005), Accra (2008) and Busan (2011), and also led the monitoring survey processes on the implementation of the Paris Declaration commitments.

How the OECD DAC is working towards achieving the aid effectiveness principles
Implementation of the Busan commitments will be tracked at the global level through a set of 10 indicators and targets. Developing countries will play an important role in generating evidence of progress and challenges, helping to ensure accountability for the implementation of Busan commitments, as well as sharing knowledge and good practices.
This new monitoring framework draws on previous work in monitoring the implementation of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness. It recognises the broader focus of the Busan Partnership agreement, for example, on collaboration with civil society and the private sector.
