Report on Aid Effectiveness Soon to be Released

Results of a survey on the effectiveness of aid donor monies to the country's development priorities will be publicized soon.

The Survey was launched in December last year.

National Coordinator of the Paris Declaration Monitoring Survey, Cornelius Walegerea says results of the survey will be made available at the end of this month. A series of examinations will follow before the first draft report is released next month.

He says the report is important because it will show the strengths and weaknesses of aid in the country.

Mr Walegerea says effectiveness of aid in Solomon Islands will be measured against five principles including ownership, alignment, harmonization, managing for development results and mutual accountability.

SIBC understands that donors are committed to fulfill these five principles in an agreement known as the Paris Declaration.
