Aid Delivery

Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 11 July 2007

8. To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what plans he has to improve the mechanisms for the delivery of aid. (148665)

We are committed to deliver aid in ways that maximise the benefits to poor people.

The best aid supports countries’ own strategies. We have an action plan to improve the predictability and effectiveness of UK aid and encourage other donors to do likewise. We have announced an Independent Advisory Committee for Development Impact to ensure we learn and apply lessons for aid delivery.

We track the effectiveness of multilateral organisations to inform our funding decisions and drive reform. Working with others, we are assessing options to strengthen the ways in which donors and partner countries hold each other to account.
