Budget support and beyond: Can the Paris Agenda on aid be delivered?

Research reports

The 2006 CAPE workshop followed a year in which development aid rose rapidly up the global agenda. Amongst others, the UK Commission for Africa and the UN Millennium Project successfully
presented the case for increasing aid flows and the G8 committed to double aid to Africa to $10bn by 2010. Aid effectiveness issues also gained ground with the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness
offering the most comprehensive statement yet of international commitment to improve the quality of development aid. Unlike the Rome and Monterrey statements which preceded it, the Paris
Agenda introduced clear targets for monitoring the progress of implementation at country level and a commitment to hold donors and recipient governments mutually accountable for achieving
results.
