Harmonising Donor Practices for Effective Aid Delivery: Two Volumes

 

In Rome in 2003, the international development community committed to improve its efforts towards harmonising aid in order to have a greater impact on poverty reduction. Heads of multilateral organisations and DAC donors committed to align their co-operation programmes with the priorities of the recipient countries.

These publications present a set of practical steps to harmonise donor practices in order to significantly improve the effectiveness of development assistance. Implementing the strategies and tools set out in these Good Practices can result in more effective and sustainable capacity development. This can in turn help create procurement systems that achieve greater value for money. These papers are targeted towards procurement professionals and the political leadership in developing and donor countries who are serious about improving the effectiveness of their development and aid programmes.

 

Volume 1

ISBN: 9789264199835

Publication date: May 2003

The international community is committed to helping partner countries meet the Millennium Development Goal of halving global poverty by 2015. Effective use of official development assistance is one important contribution to this end.

This is why the development community, under the auspices of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), is dedicated to implementing improvements in aid practices that deliver more effective and harmonised support to the efforts of partner countries. The good practices presented here have been designed to respond to this concern. They represent a set of practical steps that – if applied by development agencies – should significantly improve the effectiveness of development assistance, while maintaining the same standards of quality.

Volume 2

ISBN: 9789264035836

Publication date: April 2006

This second volume focuses specifically on good practice in providing budget support and support to sector-wide approaches.

In doing so, it acknowledges the special relevance of public financial management issues for both of these modalities of aid delivery. This is why the last chapter of this volume is devoted to setting out good practice in providing support to capacity development for public financial management. This chapter, and the others, is complemented by a substantive annex that outlines a proposed approach to supporting improved public financial management performance.
