The global monitoring framework tracks progress on the commitments and actions agreed in 2011 at the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness.

What is the global monitoring framework?

The global monitoring framework tracks progress on the commitments and actions agreed in 2011 at the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness.

The framework consists of a set of ten indicators that measure progress in improving the effectiveness of development co-operation in specific areas, such as the transparency and predictability of aid, gender equality and the contribution of the private sector to development.

Some of the indicators are based on those contained in the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness that developing countries identified as particularly important. Other indicators capture some of the new, broader dimensions of the Busan Partnership agreement.


Why do we need a global monitoring framework?
 
To strengthen results for developing countries, development co-operation practices must be further enhanced and made more effective. The monitoring framework emphasizes and tracks this behaviour change in development co-operation. Participation in the global monitoring activities is voluntary.

The monitoring framework:

  • supports accountability for what was agreed in Busan by providing a snapshot of progress on the effectiveness of development cooperation at international level;
  • highlights opportunities and challenges for further progress in making the Busan principles a reality;
  • stimulates inclusive dialogue on improving the effectiveness of development co-operation within countries and internationally; and,
  • promotes agreement on actions to use the Busan principles successfully.

The framework does not monitor development outcomes, which are addressed through other international frameworks such as the Millennium Development Goals.

How does this work?
 
Five indicators are measured using information collected from individual developing countries and aggregated to offer a global overview of progress. The remaining five indicators rely on other existing global processes or desk reviews.

The monitoring data will be used to prepare periodic progress reports. A first review of progress will be completed by mid-2013 in time to inform political dialogue during the first ministerial-level meeting of the Global Partnership.
