Presentation outline

  • Why the Platform?

2. What is the Platform?

- Activities & products

- Organization

- Towards improved donor cooperation

  • The Platform and the Paris Declaration
slide4

1. Why do we need a

Global Donor Platform?

  • Growing consensus: We‘ll miss MDGs if rural poverty not reduced.

But:

      • Consensus on how to reduce rural poverty is fragile
      • Differences in policies, ineffective lesson-learning, duplication of efforts impede sustainable RD

at the same time:

      • Paris Declarations demand „aid effectiveness“

and a re-orientation of the delivery mechanisms

So:

      • GDPRD launched end-2003 as a joint initiative of donor agencies and international finance institutions
slide5

2. What is the Platform?

  • A communication and facilitation mechanism between donors, partner countries, high-level policy dialogue, and national development frameworks
  • A learning network between countries as well as between donor head-offices and field staff
  • Ultimate objective: Reduce poverty and enhance economic growth in rural areas in developing countries through improved donor cooperation, collaboration & coordinated dialogue with partner countries
slide6

Activities and products (1)

  • Three pillars: Pillar 1
  • Advocate needs/opportunities of rural poor
  • Product:: “The role of agriculture in achieving the MDGs”, donor pamphlet & narrative paper
  • Key messages:
    • Agricultural growth = Best avenue to pro-poor growth. No other way
    • to better employ existing resources & create enough jobs
  • GDPRD promotes its messages through its Focal Points at donor agencies, in conferences and through broad media
slide7

Activities & products (2)

  • Pillar 2
  • Promote shared learning
  • Products:
    • Platform website to share donor experiences and documents (www.rdxxl.org)
    • Online Forum to facilitate drafting joint policies (e.g. Joint
    • Donor Rural Concept)
    • Rural Focus of PRSPs (led by IFAD, with other members)
    • Lessons learnt from in-country facilitation services (Pillar 3)
    • Facilitate donor understanding of what RD means today
      • and how to jointly implement it with partner countries
slide8

Activities & products (3)

  • Pillar 3:
  • Foster H&A efforts in RD at country level
  • Products:
    • Build a global community of practice for PBAs and link existing regional networks: e.g. RUTA/Central America, Hub/West Africa, Africa Forum.
    • Technical & financial support to donor harmonisation & alignment, based on jointly drafted, long-term action plans in pilot countries Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Nicaragua

Documenting lessons learned from “real-life” donor cooperation,

identifying knowledge gaps about Paris Declaration and

bottlenecks in donor cooperation

slide9

Organization (1)

  • Steering Committee (SC)

is the main decision-maker

  • SC is composed of the

Focal Points of 6 member-

organizations

  • Germany‘s Federal Ministry for

Economic Cooperation &

Development (BMZ)

and FAO are present

co-chairs

Chair:

FAO

BMZ

slide10

Organization (2)

  • 25 members at present

(bi- and multilateral)

  • Platform Secretariat is housed by BMZ in Bonn, Germany, and managed by GTZ
slide11

Towards improved donor cooperation

  • In-country facilitation:

Platform acts as “external and independent facilitator” in the

coordination processes between donors and partners as they work to

set up the new modes of delivery for better harmonisation &

alignment in development aid (PBAs, SWAps, budget support etc).

The Platform

      • moderates the joint development of a road map between donors and partners
      • functions as honest broker in the coordination processes
      • helps create an atmosphere of trust and transparency
slide12

3. GDPRD and the Paris Declaration

  • Providing a global learning network on how to implement the Paris Declaration in agricultural and rural programmes; close cooperation with regional and other sector initiatives
  • GDPRD works with Learning Network on Programme- Based Approaches to help monitor implementation of Paris Declaration (with the Joint Venture on Monitoring the Paris Declaration, hosted by the OECD/DAC)

Raise respective country profile through dissemination of

‘pioneer work’ in the translation of harmonization & alignment

principles into practice in the rural sector
