1. Why do we need a countries for pro-poor growth in rural areas

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

Towards improved donor cooperation countries for pro-poor growth in rural areas

  • 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
