In 2011 the international development community committed to make development co-operation more effective to deliver better results for the world’s poor. At the mid-point between commitments endorsed in the High-Level Forum in Busan, Korea in 2011 and the 2015 target date of the Millennium Development Goals, this report takes stock of how far we have come and where urgent challenges lie.

The Global Partnership supports accountability for “making progress in the implementation of commitments and actions agreed in Busan” through an agreed global monitoring framework. It places particular emphasis on behaviour change in development co-operation efforts, which is in turn expected to contribute to the achievement of results as defined in developing countries’ development strategies.
The Monitoring Surveys are a global process where donors and developing countries assess whether progress has been made towards more effective aid. When developed and developing countries committed themselves to the Paris Declaration principles in 2005, and to the Busan commitments in 2011, they agreed not only to a set of principles, but also to meeting a set of measurable targets.
Development ministers from OECD and emerging economies met in London 4 - 5 December for the High Level Meeting of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee(DAC).
The set of principles for effective aid is rooted in continuous efforts to improve the delivery of aid, marked by three notable events: the High Level Fora on Aid Effectiveness in Rome, Paris and Accra in 2003, 2005 and 2008, respectively.
The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation is an inclusive forum bringing together a wide range of countries and organisations from around the world that are committed to ensuring that development co-operation is effective and supports the achievement of results.
Aid plays an important role in reducing poverty and inequality, stimulating growth, building capacity, promoting human development and accelerating the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. Effective aid is critical both to maximise the impact of aid and to achieve long-term, sustainable development.
Aid to the health sector has increased substantially over the last 20 years from USD 5 billion in 1990 to USD 21.8
