Aid effectiveness post-2010: A think piece on ways forward

This think piece considers issues and possible directions in the approach to aid effectiveness beyond 2010. Specifically, it seeks to inform DFID thinking on the prospects for and direction of a new international agreement on aid effectiveness due to be negotiated at the fourth High Level Forum.

This think piece is based on the findings from a detailed literature review and a one-day workshop held at ODI bringing together key experts in the field. The major focus of both the literature review and the workshop centred on:

  • Key drivers of change in aid post 2010;
  • Critical pressure points within the current aid effectiveness agenda and implications for the agenda in the future; and,
  • Identifying a set of feasible actions to take the agenda forward in the short term (up to 2011) and the medium to long term (five years + from now).
