The First High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, Rome
There is no single way in which countries can agree on how to make their development more effective, and make these decisions stick. This brief asks: how can this situation be improved?
A variety of key documents on Aid Effectiveness, High Level Fora on Aid Effectiveness, related topics and information on the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness are assembled on this page for download and dissemination by the general public.
In the Accra Agenda for Action (2008), donors and developing country governments commit to deepening their engagement with civil society organisations (CSOs). Better aid requires a broader understanding of the aid effectiveness agenda and a place for CSOs as development actors in their own right and as aid donors, recipients and partners. This book is a resource for implementing the recommendations on civil society and aid effectiveness emerging from the Accra High Level Forum and its preparatory process. These recommendations address a broad community, including developing country governments, donors, and CSOs from developing and developed countries.

This series concentrates on the effort by both donor and recipient countries of realising their Paris Declaration commitments.
