Aid effectiveness

How can civil society help to make development aid more effective? Some 30 civil society organisation (CSO) representatives met to discuss this question on 7 March, at the OECD headquarters, with the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness, an international partnership of donors and recipient countries, hosted by the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC).
The meeting kicked off with a dialogue on how to work together in implementing the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness, signed in March 2005 by nearly 100 donor and partner countries. “Transparency and access to information were key ingredients enabling relevant CSO interventions in the 7 March meeting,” wrote representatives of the CSOs in a letter to the Working Party after the meeting. It was the first in a series of dialogues that will take place in the run-up to the High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Accra, Ghana in September 2008. OECD Observer N0 261 May 2007
