French action plan on aid effectiveness
French Action Plan To enhance aid effectiveness and implement the Paris Declaration
Aid effectiveness is a key concern for all development assistance actors. This agenda is now structured by the five principles of the Paris Declaration endorsed on 8 March 2005, namely ownership, harmonisation, alignment, results-based management and mutual accountability. In order to meet its commitments, France’s development cooperation has adopted an action plan to enhance aid effectiveness and implement the Paris Declaration.
The French plan summarises the commitments made by France in the Paris Declaration with a view to achieving the targets set for 2010. Taking the indicators selected by the OECD’s Development Assistance Committee (DAC) as a framework, the plan sets forth France’s objectives in terms of improving the division of labour and aid predictability.
The plan is based on 12 measures that refer to three overarching aims: a focus on capacity building; the expanded role of Partnership Framework Papers; and improving the procedures and practices of French development cooperation.
