Effective development co-operation

Assessing Progress towards Effective development co-operation


The Monitoring Survey is 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.

2011 Survey on Monitoring the Paris Declaration


This independent evaluation of the 2005 Paris Declaration principles and the Accra Agenda for action for achieving more effective aid has shown that the Paris principles do make a difference for development, although many of the principles have been in practice for years. Globally, the survey results show considerable variation in the direction and pace of progress across donors and partner countries since 2005.
