Overview

The donor community is committed to increasing aid and to working with partners to make aid more effective. Donors are held accountable for the way they manage aid and the development results they achieve. They want to see more partner country ownership, greater use of partner country systems, and work better together. This involves decentralising responsibility, concentrating efforts, managing for results, creating new systems, changing staff profiles, and building capacity in donor and partner countries.
But just how do we achieve all this? There are many questions, and even more answers. Managing Aid offers many of these answers, outlining what individual donors are doing to fulfil their development co-operation ambitions and their part of the international agreements - reached in Paris in 2005 (Paris Declaration) and Accra in 2008 (Accra Agenda for Action) - to make aid more effective.
This book surveys the practices of the 23 members that make up the OECD Development Assistance Committee. In doing so, it seeks to offer inspiration to aid managers and practitioners - new and experienced - who are interested in continuously improving the way donors and partners work together. The lessons learned should enable them to make greater strides towards their shared goal: help partner countries to implement their own strategies to reduce poverty and give their populations a better chance in life.
