Effective Development Cooperation: Our Core Advocacy

Core to our agenda is the advancement of the implementation of an effective development cooperation (EDC) framework, particularly in relation to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Commitments to align development cooperation to the four principles of EDC since the First High-Level Forum in Rome (HLF-1) to the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (HLF-2), the Accra Agenda for Action (HLF-3), and the Busan Partnership for Effective Development  (HLF-4) have yet to be fulfilled by stakeholders. This principle are country ownership, focus on results, inclusive partnership transparency and accountability.

 

EDC is informed by the critical understanding of the development process, namely the examination of the content and purpose of aid and development policies as well as the political nature of the developing relationships. It shapes inclusive structures for accountability for donors and governments, promotes the alignment of donor country priorities with national development plans, and fully accessible aid data.

Key Message

Be both forward-looking and deeply rooted in previous aid and development effectiveness commitments, drawing from the experience and lessons learned in the past fifteen years. Bring together the principle of universality and the effectiveness agenda to forward the aspirations of the 2030 Agenda in a manner that espouses the highest level of mutual-accountability. Effective Development Cooperation agenda is important in attaining the Sustainable Development Goals, but EDC should not be limited to this. There should be recognition that issues covered by EDC go beyond the 2030 Agenda. Uphold the integrity and universality of the development effectiveness agenda. In the current development landscape, there is still a strong need to reflect and provide a detailed account of the ‘unfinished aid business’ from Paris and Accra. This should feed into but remain distinct from the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda (AAAA) Reaffirm the development effectiveness principles agreed in Busan – democratic country ownership, focus on results, inclusive development partnerships, and transparency and accountability – as pillars of the effective development co-operation agenda. Reiterate the centrality of human rights. In accordance with the Busan outcome document, the development effectiveness principles must be defined as consistent with agreed international commitments on human rights, decent work, gender equality, environmental sustainability and disability; Empower rights-holders (people) to hold duty bearers (governments) and other donors accountable in all development cooperation programs, projects and policies, as well as in governance structures at all levels; (HRBA).
