Paper on CONCORD AidWatch’s input to the OECD DAC committee meeting in March:
CONCORD AidWatch welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the forthcoming debates of OECD-DAC Senior Level meeting which will discuss development finance and especially ODA modernisation. That being said we would like to see this to go a step forward in officially soliciting inputs from CSOs and partner countries through formal consultations. We believe that Civil Society’s involvement will increase ownership and bring additional added value to the debates. Finally there needs to be more time for developing submissions to allow various stakeholders especially the CSOs from partner countries to determine consensus positions and effectively consult their constituencies. The timeframe for this submission was not sufficient enough to develop a clear position on all of the issues discussed.
