Smart Procurement for More Effective Aid

EURODAD (The European Network on Debt and Development), a network of 54 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) from 19 European countries working on issues related to debt, development finance and poverty reduction, has published on 06 September 2011 a major new report, “How to spend it: smart procurement for more effective aid.”  This is in preparation for the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (HLF4) in Busan, South Korea, at the end of November 2011.

The report investigates how aid is actually spent, who the beneficiaries are and what the local economic impact is.  The report also includes suggestions for a new and ambitious agreement in Busan, and it constitutes one of the few civl society research reports ahead of the HLF4.  It builds on six country case studies in Bangladesh, Bolivia, Ghana, Namibia, Nicaragua, and Uganda,  conducted by Eurodad together with local civil society organisations.  It monitors the implementation of aid effectiveness commitments in the fields of procurement, aid untying and the use of country systems, which were made in the Paris Declaration and the Accra Agenda for Action.
