NGOs receive Deauville Report on G8 health and food security commitment

The minister for overseas development, Henri de Raincourt, hosted a working lunch for representatives of the major development NGOs and presented the Deauville Accountability Report entitled G8 Commitments on Health and Food Security: State of Delivery and Results. Following the first G8 report on accountability which resulted from the 2010 Muskoka Summit, the latest report reflects the new path of transparency and a thorough follow-up of its commitments. The report attempts a twin-track approach to accountability: on the one hand a quantitative approach based mostly on transparent reporting of disbursements of official development assistance, and, on the another hand, a qualitative approach based on the principles of aid effectiveness, measuring results and suggesting best practices. In 2011, under the French Presidency, the G8 has focused on the two key sectors of health and food security. During the meeting with NGOs, Mr de Raincourt highlighted the G8’s contribution in 2008 and 2009 of more than 24 billion dollars of Official Development Assistance (ODA) to the health sector, as well as providing close to 80 percent of funding for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Regarding food security, the minister also pointed out that almost half of the 20 billion dollars pledged during the 2009 G8 summit in L’Aquila have already been disbursed. According to the OECD, G8 members account for nearly 70 percent of total ODA, which amounted to almost 90 billion dollars in 2010. As a result of targets and commitments set out by the G8, as well as a collective approach, aid provided by the G8 increased by 31 billion dollars between 2004 and 2010, an increase of 54 percent.
