Norway gave USD 4.8 billion in official development assistance (ODA) in 2012, or 0.93 percent of its gross national income (GNI). That made it the third most-generous member in terms of its ODA/GNI ratio of the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC), which groups major donors.
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.

DAC Evaluation Network's Newsletter for December 2013
Transparency has been pushed to the top of the global agenda. The DAC's mandate to further the understanding of development finance, strengthen aid delivery, improve development policy and build partnerships for development is both complimentary to and a crucial part of the success of the global transparency agenda.
The OECD is now making its Creditor Reporting System (CRS) data on DAC members available in International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) XML format. CRS data on development finance can now be downloaded in four different formats and cater to different audiences.

Strengthening OECD firewalls can only do so much to combat a phenomenon which thrives
on weak governance. This report highlights that donor agencies can support this goal through their central role in linking OECD and developing countries, and using their aid to support governments willing to tackle these issues.
