HLF-4 Busan, 29 Nov – 01 Dec 2011

The Fourth High Level Forum for Aid Effectiveness (HLF-4) will be held in Busan, Korea on 29 November to 1 December 2011.  This follows meetings in Rome, Paris and Accra that helped transform aid relationships between donors and partners into true vehicles for development cooperation.  Here ministers and specialists will take stock of what has been advanced in implementing the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness (2005) and will seek to set out a new consensus on development.

Asian Development Bank (ADB) is playing a key role to ensure the Asia and Pacific experiences and perspectives are a part of the key HLF-4 agenda and outcomes. It is also supporting participation of developing countries at the HLF-4.  Click here to learn more about ADB’s role in HLF-4.

HLF-4 Busan also presents an opportunity to raise the strategic importance of public procurement through a procurement side event in the afternoon of Day 2, 30 November 2011.  At that side event, there will be discussion on “The Strategic Importance of Public Procurement” (SIPP) by Prof. Gustavo Piga, the primary author of a brief prepared by the ADB.  ADB has funded research leading to the publication of a SIPP brochure for distribution at the forum.  It clearly sets out the opportunities for more effective and efficient public procurement and as an important policy tool.  Click here to view and download a copy of the brochure.
