Aid Effectiveness and Women’s Rights Series, Primer No.1
In 2005 civil society organizations bore witness to the signing of the Paris Declaration on AidEffectiveness (PD)—history’s most recent agreement by donor and recipient countriesto reform the delivery and management of aid monies in order to strengthen its impact andeffectiveness. In 2005, more than 106.8 billion USD flowed in the form of Official DevelopmentAssistance (ODA) from bilateral and multilateral funding agencies to developingcountry governments.1 In fifty years of aid allocation, the beneficiaries of these publicmonies have rarely been women who are receiving a very tiny proportion of overall ODA.2Aid as a structuring device, process and resource has had debatable effectiveness in reducingpoverty, promoting development and supporting women’s rights.This Primer is dedicated to providing an overview of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and the subsequent new aid modalities that have emerged.
