Building up to Busan and more effective aid

Earlier this month, the OECD released the first draft of its official outcome document for the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, taking place in Busan, South Korea, later this year. This document forms only the starting point for negotiations and is likely to undergo many changes in the coming months – a good thing, as the current draft contains many flaws.

The summit will bring together a range of stakeholders including government ministers, parliamentarians, private sector representatives and civil society.Their task is to review global progress in improving the impact and value for money of development aid and make new commitments to ensure that aid helps reduce poverty and supports progress in meeting the Millennium Development Goals. But the draft outcomes fail to put sufficient emphasis on critical aid effectiveness issues, such as accountability, ownership, and human rights and poverty eradication-focused results. […] We believe that the Busan agreement should be based on providing real and effective aid to end aid dependency, reform of the aid architecture, reinforcing mutual accountability and the human rights based approach to development. […]

One thing is for sure. With the Busan conference only a few months away, we’ve got our work cut out. But in order for Busan to succeed and have a lasting impact on development, negotiators need to re-consider what will really make aid more effective.
