Policy Papers

In 2010, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development convened an Informal Group on the Private Sector and Aid Effectiveness to better understand the role of aid as a catalyst in supporting effective private sector contribution to development.

This paper is based on the positions on aid architecture that BetterAid has developed over the past eighteen months, which include “Making development cooperation architecture just” and the “CSOs on the road to Busan".Also, it reflects the discussions that took place most recently to comment

“ CSOs on the road to Busan: Key messages and proposals” lays out the main demands from civil society organizations (CSOs) in the run up to the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan in November 2011.
