Reality of Aid Network launches new report on partnerships in post-2015 era
With a few months before the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire, how development cooperation should adapt to the new post-2015 environment – particularly the partnerships that underscore such cooperation, is a key debate.
The Reality of Aid 2014 Report titled “Rethinking Partnerships in a Post-2015 World: Towards Equitable, Inclusive and Sustainable Development,” with 27 civil society contributions from both aid-recipient and donor countries, provides unique perspectives to this question.
VOICE contributed a article in the report titled " Redefining partnership: The Need for a holistic approach for effective development partnership in Bangladesh"
Since the early 1990s, the Reality of Aid Network (RoA), a Southern-led North/South network on reforming aid policies and practices, publishes a major global report assessing development aid for poverty reduction with an emphasis on qualitative analysis of the national and multilateral aid regime.
The RoA Reports analyse and advocate key messages relating to the performance of aid donors from a unique perspective of civil society in both donor and recipient countries. These Reports have developed a reputation in many donor countries as an important independent comparative reference for accountability and public awareness of development cooperation issues.
The 2014 Report examines current proposals for the post-2015 agenda, and for the financing of this agenda, in particular with respect to the issue of global, regional and national partnerships, and partnerships that engage a range of development actors.
Contributors to the Report explored the following topics:
a) Principles and practice for inclusive partnership at the global and national levels,
b) New (and existing) models of partnering for positive development outcomes for the poor, and
c) Preconditions for equitable partnerships that contribute to sustainable development outcomes for the poor.
Through this examination, RoA contributes a global civil society perspective on the issues, with key messages framed by the network’s focus on maximizing contributions to poverty eradication, within a framework that is defined by human rights standards.
The international launch of the Reality of Aid 2014 Report is on 4 December 2014, 6pm at Espresso Café, OECD Conference Centre, 2 rue André Pascal, 75016 Paris, France.
