Aid effectiveness: Commission puts Europe in tough situation for Busan

Last week, the European Commission released the proposal for a joint EU position for the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (HLF4) which will take place in Busan (Korea) end of November this year. The Communication contains few concrete commitments and lacks the ambition to put Europe at the forefront of the political negotiations ahead of the HLF4. This is in stark contrast with the role that the Commission played ahead of the HLF3, 2008 in Accra, where the EU positioned itself as a progressive and driving force, willing to make unilateral commitments that went beyond what the Development Assistance Committee of the OECD was prepared to concede. Civil society organisations are deeply disappointed with the lack of ambition shown by the Commission and are hopeful that Member States will substantially improve the joint European position before the international negotiations in Busan begin.

The Communication builds on the findings of the recent OECD report  “Aid Effectiveness 2005-2010: Progress in Implementing the Paris Declaration.” This report shows that only one of the 13 reform targets of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness was met by 2010, as agreed in the Paris Declaration. It recommends that HLF4 reaffirms the principles of the Paris Declaration and the Accra Agenda for Action and provides more time to achieve full implementation of existing commitments.
