Oxfam America: ‘country ownership – of both citizens and government – is crucial for effective development’

In anticipation of their upcoming Ownership Paper, Oxfam America have emphasised ‘the need to transfer information, capacity, and control of development assistance to recipients’ as a crucial step towards effective development. Highlighting the words of development leaders across the world, Oxfam America’s Aid Effectiveness Team focused on the three factors – information, capacity, and control, as the driving force towards effective country ownership of aid.

“We will focus on country-driven solutions that give responsible governments more information, capacity, and control as they tailor strategies to meet their needs.” – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, at the AGOA Forum in Nairobi, Kenya, Aug 5, 2009

Oxfam America’s Ownership Paper will be published this fall.
