Analytical Note, August 2008
Comments on the 3rd high level forum on aid effectiveness. Final Draft of the Accra Agenda for Action.
This South Centre Analytical Note looks at the 25 July 2008 final draft text of the Accra Agenda for Action (AAA) that is being proposed for adoption by participants at the Third High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Accra, Ghana, in September 2008.
It argues that the text of the AAA sets the participation of developing countries within the framework and the norms set by developed country donors and will therefore end up strengthening the OECD-DAC framework and its associated governance structure, and does not suggest any inherent change in the governance structure of the international aid system which continues to be donor-driven and reflective of developed countries’ economic and policy reform agendas.
