Monitoring and Evaluation of the Paris Declaration Implementation

Aid Effectiveness and Women’s Rights Series, Primer No.4

Monitoring and Evaluation of the Paris Declaration Implementation
The monitoring and evaluation process of implementation of the Paris Declaration has been broadly debated among civil society organizations involved in the aid effectiveness process. This primer presents a general overview of this process, the key results of the first official round of monitoring, and the main concerns and recommendations put forward by CSOs participating in the parallel process towards the HLF3.

The purpose for creating this set of Primers, Understanding the Aid Effectiveness Agenda is to share critical information and analysis with women’s rights advocates about the new aid architecture that has emerged as a result of the Paris Declaration (PD)—the most recent donor-recipient countries agreement designed to increase the impact of aid. The Aid effectiveness agenda born out of the PD currently determines how and to whom aid
is being delivered as well as how donor and recipient countries relate to one another. Aid distribution is clearly not simply a mechanistic process, but rather a political one.
