Development Effectiveness refers to the relative strength of development assistance and development cooperation in achieving its stated goals and objectives.
Continual attempts are being made by the donor community in collaboration with multilateral organisations and Non Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in ensuring that development assistance is as effective as possible. Such attempts are generally aligned with efforts to increase the degree of donor assistance harmonisation, with some focus given to reducing duplicated assistance efforts, greater harmonisation through joint donor formulation of country assistance programs and the like, regular donor and development assistance recipient meetings on terms and conditions of development cooperation, and adherence to internationally ratified aid effectiveness principles.
