Interview: Busan beckons with new promise

For a start, stop calling it "aid", Brian Atwood, chair of the Development Assistance Committee at the OECD, tells IPS. The aid effectiveness summit in Busan starting today may move the dialogue further through the language of "development cooperation" instead, Atwood says. There could be a lot in a name here; it may signify the strengthening of a different way of partnering development.

Signs are that the Busan summit will take agreements on development cooperation forward substantially, Atwood says in an email interview. The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which is leading the fourth high-level forum on aid effectiveness taking place in Busan, South Korea, Nov. 29-Dec. 1, says that at a time of particular economic difficulties, agreements reached at Busan would be vital.
