Aid effectiveness

Assessing progress on implementing the Busan Principles

 

The Global Partnership supports accountability for “progress in the implementation of commitments and actions agreed in Busan” through a global monitoring framework.
It places particular emphasis on behaviour change in development co-operation efforts, which in turn contributes to the achievement of results as defined in countries’ development strategies.

 

Making Development Co-operation More Effective: 2014 Progress report

What is the state of implementation of the Busan principles? Are we on track to deliver on the commitments agreed in Busan in 2011? How is progress assessed, and what are the limitations to the approach used?
This report is a first snapshot of the state-of-play since Busan. 

The Busan monitoring framework is the key source of evidence for the progress report that informed discussions at the Global Partnership's first High Level Meeting from 15-16 April 2014.

The report provides information on the degree to which development partners are implementing their commitments on improving development co-operation as agreed in the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan 2011.

Gathering evidence through the agreed monitoring framework is an important way for the Global Partnership to support high-level political accountability at the global level. This report will be the first in a series of progress reports that are to be prepared every 18-24 months ahead of ministerial-level meetings of the Global Partnership.

 

Information about the monitoring process and background information is available on the website of the Global Partnership

   

 

 

Why is progress towards Busan commitments important?

 

Assessing aid principles strengthens development co-operation. Assessments provide a strategic tool for donors and developing countries to hold each other to account. The monitoring exercises emphasise behaviour change in development co-operation efforts, this contributes to achieving the results defined in countries’ development strategies.

It is important to provide evidence of progress and signal opportunities as well as obstacles for further progress.

 

 The Global Partnership monitoring framework

 
Supports accountability among stakeholders for the implementation of the Busan commitments on aid effectiveness and actions by providing a snapshot of progress at the international level. Stimulates multi-stakeholder dialogue at both country and international levels on how to improve the effectiveness of development co-operation. Reaches agreements on specific actions that are needed to enhance successful implementation of the principles on aid effectiveness and support accountability at country level.

 

Indicators

 

The report draws on the results from the monitoring as well as other qualitative evidence, to provide a rich picture of progress made by all development partners towards effective aid. Ten indicators and corresponding targets have been identified for monitoring the Busan commitments.

 

  • Five indicators build on the indicators used in the “Survey on Monitoring the Implementation of the Paris Declaration”and  include: use of country systems, alignment with country’s own development objectives, predictability, aid untying and a focus on results, and mutual accountability.
  •  Five indicators have been developed based on what partner countries identified as important to capture the broader dimensions of the Busan Partnership agreement. 

 

 

Data

 

Data will also be made freely available via the OECD’s dot.stat. Countries are encouraged to use their country-level data for their own ends, such as in the production of country reports, or to feed country-level discussions.
