For the most part, the findings are clear: while many donors and partner country governments
have made significant progress towards the targets that they set themselves for 2010,
few of them have been met. Partner country authorities appear to have gone further
in implementing their commitments under the Paris Declaration than donors, though
efforts – and progress – also vary significantly across countries and donor organisations.
As the international community takes stock of what has been achieved on the occasion
of the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, Korea (29 November to
1 December 2011), this report sets out evidence of progress and challenges in making
aid more effective. This evidence should help forge a consensus beyond Busan that
aid – and its effectiveness –represents only one element of a broader landscape of
development finance and joint efforts to make aid more effective can and should inform
a broader development effectiveness agenda.
