Global Reach is the Prize at Busan
As the countdown to the Busan High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness enters its final stage, there is little clarity on what the various parties really want from the meeting, let alone what will emerge and what difference it might make. The Busan meeting’s main objective should be to reach global agreement on a few core standards applying to all major providers of development cooperation. The time is right for a bold attempt to draw all countries together behind clear principles that matter for development finance.
