Aid Effectivenss after Accra


This Briefing Paper examines aid effectiveness and the impact of the Paris Principles in the run-up to the Third High Level Forum, in Accra in September 2008. Drawing on research commissioned by ABIA, it concludes that political change in aid recipient countries is more important than anyone is admitting and that donor alignment efforts are compromised by a damaging mix of risk-avoidance and political correctness. It argues that both donors and country authorities should assume greater responsibility for their own incentive structures.

    Sierra Leone

    Even though I have worked in Sierra Leone in the past, the role of MLI Country Lead has given me the opportunity to build upon these previous experiences and to work closely with members of the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS), to support the implementation of health policies and reforms that they have prioritized.
