The Results Community is an informal network dedicated to results-based management for effective development co-operation. It is supported by the OECD Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD) on behalf of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC).

How the community works

Staff from DAC provider or observer agencies who work in results-based management take part in the Results Community.  Staff from partner governments, think tanks, research bodies, civil society organisations, and other stakeholders who are involved in the results agenda are also involved in the Results Community on an ad hoc basis.

The purpose of the Results Community is to foster exchange and drive collective learning among development co-operation providers, their partners and other stakeholders.  Together, members share good practice, discuss common challenges and shape the results agenda.

The Results Team within the OECD Development Co-operation Directorate co-ordinates the community and creates opportunities for dialogue and learning via analytic work, bi-annual workshops and this website.

Events and publications from the Results Community

Development Initiatives paper on results and leave no-one behind
Judith Randall and Tony German of Development Initiatives are working with a small group from  the OECD DAC Results Community to write a paper with options and suggestions for how the Leave No One Behind imperative can be captured in the results frameworks of development co-operation. This paper will form the basis of a session in the forthcoming OECD DAC Results Community Workshop, Paris, October 9-10, 2017, as one Results Community member commented: “[the planned paper] pulls the Leave no one behind issue right into the heart of our results thinking, which is where we want it to be.”


Results-based management in partner countries’ Voluntary National Reviews
Integrating the SDGs, targets and indicators in national plans and results frameworks may require improved results-based management. For the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), countries are submitting Voluntary National Reviews of SDG progress and implementation. Of 22 national reviews submitted by developing countries for the 2016 or 2017 HLPF (and screened online by the DCD), some countries gave evidence of improved results-based management in the context of SDG integration, for example, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kenya and Tajikistan. Almost all countries report establishing links between their existing planning targets and indicators and those of the SDGs. For Voluntary National Reviews, see inputs to the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.
