Introduction

On 27-28 February 2014, a Global Partnership Post-Monitoring Workshop took place in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The Workshop was co-organised by the Government of Côte d’Ivoire and the UNDP-OECD joint support team. It took place back-to back to the Multi-stakeholder Consultation on the African Common Position for the Mexico HLM (24-26 February 2014). The Global Partnership for Effective Development Co-operation’s Monitoring Framewok was rolled out in mid-2013, emphasising a country-focused approach and drawing on the Busan commitment to agree on frameworks based on national needs and priorities for monitoring progress and promoting mutual accountability at the country level. The Global Partnership Post-Monitoring Workshop provided an opportunity for participating countries and organisations to discuss experiences from the Global Partnership monitoring framework and key empirical findings.

Summary

Key Outcomes:

  1. Effectiveness and accountability matter.
  2. Core ‘aid effectiveness’ gains broadly sustained.
  3. Reform takes time but it works – need to continue investing, also in ‘younger’ Busan commitments.
  4. Inclusiveness is on the table – but not yet a full reality.
  5. Transparency drive starting to show results – but these need to be geared towards countries’ needs.
  6. Countries increasingly own monitoring – need to support data quality and providers’ country engagement.
