Recognising that securing better development results can only be achieved if all stakeholders work together as effectively as possible, development partners, national governments and civil society have come together to agree a set of common principles for effective development cooperation.International multistakeholder agreements laying out reciprocal commitments to improve the effectiveness of development aid over timeFormalised international consensus on the importance of effective aid programmingAlso set out clear, monitorable targets and indicators, and accompanied by a robust monitoring framework
Country ownership is the overarching purpose of AE- developing countries take leadership---
There is growing evidence that countries with robust sector systems perform better in terms of extending and sustaining services, particularly to poorer communities. Coherent sector strategies with broad-based country ownership can act as the basis for resource mobilisation and implementation and are capable of driving change. In contrast, fragmented and duplicative systems lead to inefficient budget allocations and a lack of accountability that can undermine government leadership and reduce sector effectiveness. Strengthening WASH sector systems is therefore vital to improving sector performance and maximising the value for money of government and donor spending, and will be central to delivering universal access to WASH services.
When this circle works it is virtuous –aid supports building national sector capacities for sustainable service delivery When it breaks down it can be viscous!Aid effectiveness is therefore critical For donors, aid effectiveness means identifying ways to build and support country systems capable of accelerating WASH coverage.Shifting the conversation focus on harmonising support, aligning behind national sector plans and building sector capacity.
Whilst most WASH sector actors have agreed to the principles outlined in Paris, Accra etc, actions on ground are far from meeting the expectations of the principles.These challenges can cause large inefficiencies in resource allocation and in sustaining the infrastructure that is built N.B. mention available sources: JMP/GLAAS; some studies by EUWI /AWG.However within the WASH sector we have limited (in-depth) studies on the effectiveness of aid
Cases bring out a number of critical issues for aid effectiveness
The Liberia case study has shown that there is still a lot of concentration on increasing access almost exclusively with very little focus on institutions and systems building. The points in the slide do not refer to aide effectiveness. What do we know about country leadership, sector capacities and the role of DP’s ? And ho w does that negatively or positively influence service delivery? The text under the line is probably the most interesting but what is the role of government and DP’s in this?
Other sectors and global level interesting examples of how to bring together variety of actors in a multistakeholder environment and agree global common/joint agenda for moving forwardsEducation & health sectors sector specific indicators, used to periodically review sector wide progress towards aid effectiveness
Health sector used as a tracer sector for aid effectiveness – particularly around Busan High Level Forum
N.B. Draws on both Sitali’s work, and DFID’s paper on Strengthening Accountability in the WASH sector.Urge people to read both Papers for more informationKey overarching point – foster adaptive learning
Important to acknowledge a backdrop of wider trends, both in traditional aid and beyond....Effectiveness is more important than everBUT at the same time, landscape is getting much more complex Aid effectiveness is only one part of the wider picture of development effectiveness But it is useful starting point SWA is uniquely well positioned to address aid effectiveness, because it brings together all the key players Therefore limit the scope to aid effectiveness at present, as the first step towards talking broader issues of effective development cooperation
