Fluid Dynamics? Achieving greater progress on aid effectiveness in the water sector

Research reports

Written by Josephine Tucker

This study reviews the extent to which the five Paris Principles (PPs) on Aid Effectiveness (AE) as set out in the Paris Declaration (PD) on AE: ownership, alignment, harmonisation, managing for results and mutual accountability, are being applied in the water and sanitation sector. The approach included in-depth case study research in three countries Bangladesh, Ethiopia and Uganda) and a broader document review. From this evidence the study identified ways in which external support to the water sector can be delivered more in the spirit of the PD.
