Through more than 22,000 letters to development ministers, ONE members demonstrated significant public support for increasing aid effectiveness, an issue long considered of interest only to aid experts.
Negotiations were tense in Accra, but the final Accra Agenda for Action reflected much of what ONE members asked, including:
Increasing transparency doesn't have the same tangible result as simply increasing development assistance, so it can be more difficult to sell to results-driven politicians. However, increasing aid effectiveness is crucial to making sure that when we do give aid, it effectively achieves its intended purpose.
August - September, 2008
ONE members from around the world sent tens of thousands of letters and made hundreds of phone calls to development ministers in donor countries, calling for increased aid effectiveness. The ministers responded with a new level of commitment to providing more predictable and transparent aid. MORE
