Common funds for sector support

Briefing/policy papers

Written by Tim Williamson

In the continuing effort to provide more effective aid, donors have committed themselves to making greater use of country systems and harmonising the way aid is delivered. Donor agencies that agreed to the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness in 2005 are free to choose the modality with which they deliver aid to the government sector, as long as they move progressively towards modalities that use country systems in full. Budget support and debt relief are the modalities that best meet these criteria.
