How effective is aid at helping developing countries eradicate poverty? In March 2005, more than 100 countries made a firm commitment in the Paris Declaration to measure their success, or failure, in making aid more effective.
This landmark report provides a snapshot of the state of affairs in 2005. For the first time, it assesses the effectiveness of aid, not only globally, but also for a range of donors. To measure its effectiveness, 34 developing countries and 55 donors participated in a groundbreaking survey. The results of this survey are included in this report.
Volume 1 (Overview of the Results) presents an overview of key findings across the 34 countries.
