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.
