Aid Effectiveness beyond Accra” – Daniel Kaufmann, Governance Matters, World Bank
This article discusses the outcomes of the Accra Forum on Aid Effectiveness. A last-minute addition to the Accra Agenda for Action recognised the role of Civil Society Organisations as third party monitors and active participants in the dialogue. Publish What You Fund was launched in the eve of the Forum, a fact that he notes with optimism. Kaufmann considers what the Forum achieved (and where it failed), and the way forward for aid effectiveness initiatives.
