The Accra Agenda for Action gave new impetus to the Paris principles. Agreement was reached on:
- Predictability. Donors provide, when possible, 3- to -5 year estimates of their planned aid.
- Country systems. Partner countries strengthen their capacities; developing country systems are used to deliver aid as the first option.
- Conditionality. Donors switch from prescriptive conditions about how and when aid money is spent to conditions based on the developing country’s own development objectives.
- Untying. Donors relax restrictions that prevent developing countries from buying the goods and services they need from whomever and wherever they can get the best quality at the lowest price.
Approximately 2000 delegates will review global progress in improving the impact and value for money of development aid and make new commitments to further ensure that aid helps reduce poverty and supports progress in meeting the Millennium Development Goals.
At the end of the proceedings, will be publish the Busan Outcome Document to further enhance efforts globally and within countries to make aid more effective in reducing poverty and achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
