Time to read up on “Development Effectiveness”?
Are you wondering what all the discussion about “Development Effectiveness”, “Aid Transparency” and “Managing for Results” is about?
Want to check your own organisation’s standards and practice against others?
Here’s what you can do:
1) Read Up on the matter
Log onto our revamped Development Effectiveness Resource page: http://dochas.ie/Pages/Resources/Viewer.aspx?id=313
where you will find lots of resources about aid transparency, Managing for Results, M&E and of course material about what Dóchas is doing in the area of Development Effectiveness.
2) Join the conversation
Time to ditch the stereotype that Twitter is for young people with too much time on their hands. Twitter is, in effect, a powerful tool for NGOs to engage in a proper, informed conversation about what works in global development, and what doesn’t work.
Follow, and get the latest insights from the likes of DFID Research, NGOs Open For Change, Smart Aid, EU Commissioner Georgieva, and of course Dóchas itself.
3) Let us have your research papers
As we prepare for the global “high level meeting” of Governments and NGOs on Development Effectiveness (meeting in Busan, Korea), we need to understand the diversity of NGO views on Aid Quality and Development Effectiveness.
We are particularly interested in NGO research on the following topics:
- NGO approaches to Development Effectiveness
- National Ownership of Development processes
- Aid Conditionality
- Alignment & Strengthening Country Systems
- Donor Harmonisation
- Aid and NGO Transparency
- Country Case Stories
- Sector Stories
- Diversification of Providers
- Differentiation of Recipients
- Fragility & Conflict
- Global Aid Governance
