Challenges in achieving results through aid

CHALLENGES IN ACHIEVING RESULTS THROUGH AID

Aid is a catalyst for development. However, it can incur:

  • Cumbersome administration costs

    • Prolific and uncoordinated number of indicators, donor missions, reports, audits, accounts. Numerous parallel structures.

  • A focus on short-term

    • Driving attention away from reform

  • An impact on governance

    • Weakens social contract, blurs responsibilities, donors acting like opposition

  • Wrong choices of activities

    • Donors impose agenda and ignore country needs

  • Weakened country ownership, capacity and accountability


Mfdr and the paris declaration

MFDR AND THE PARIS DECLARATION

The Five 2005 Paris Declaration Principles:

  • Ownership

    Developing countries take the lead in determining goals and priorities of their own development.

  • Alignment

    Developing countries develop national development strategies and donors must support and use strengthened country systems, for data collection.

  • Harmonisation

    Donors coordinate their actions to avoid duplication and adopt common procedures for aid delivery.

    Developing and donor countries are mutually accountable for results.

  • Managing for Development Results

    Developing and donor countries focus on achieving and measuring development results.
