Civil Society Communique From The Inter Regional Dialogue On Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness

2 November 2007

WE, the members of the Civil Society Organisations (CSO) of Southern and East Africa gathered at Pamodzi Hotel in Lusaka, Zambia on the 16th and 17th of October 2007 during the Inter Regional Dialogue on Aid Effectiveness Workshop

CONCERNED that the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness;
- 1. Is a minimalist approach to the issues around aid
- 2. It is not legally binding
- 3. Focuses on management of aid and not on the impact which is poverty reduction and development
- 4. Almost 3 years after the adoption, not much has been achieved in terms of implementation

RECOMMEND that with respect to the principles of the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness;

- 5. Southern Governments should exercise leadership and ownership by developing clear aid management policies
- 6. Conditionalities should be explicitly dealt with in the declaration
- 7. Popular participation should be well articulated and provided for in the declaration

- 8. Donors should use the existing financial systems and human capacities of the recipient Governments
- 9. Donors should use National Development Plans as a basis for support

- 10. Aid should not be supply but demand driven
- 11. Donor agencies should be well coordinated and not come individually to CSOs and Governments while CSOs should also organize themselves under umbrella bodies
- 12. Recipient countries rather than donors should determine the comparative advantage at sector or country level

Managing for Results
- 13. Should be impact based than results based
- 14. Multi-Stakeholder monitoring and evaluation mechanism should be put in place
- 15. Should aim at poverty reduction and sustainable development beyond operational management
- 16. Should refer to qualitative and not just quantitative

Mutual Accountability
- 17. Both the roles of Parliament and Civil Society Organisations should be strengthened
- 18. Donors should disclose their funding to the citizens of the recipient countries
- 19. CSOs should be an intergral part of an Independent Monitoring Group to assess the role of all parties in development efforts

FURTHER RECOMMEND that in line with the above principles with respect to relationships that condition the contribution of civil society organizations to Aid Effectiveness;

Government and Civil Society Organisations Relations
- 20. An enabling, non hostile, legislative, regulative environment be created that gives CSOs space
- 21. CSOs are development partners and should not be viewed as competing but complementing Government in poverty reduction and development
- 22. Government should engage and allow CSOs to participate in policy dialogue if the voice of the people and the poor is to be heard. CSOs should not be used to rubberstamp policy processes. Policy dialogue should not be ad-hoc and discretionary by the Government
- 23. Government and CSOs should work together and avoid competing for resources from donors

Northern and Southern Civil Society Organisations Relations
- 24. Northern CSOs should be transparent and accountable to the Southern CSOs by declaring the full amounts they receive from donors in the name of Southern CSOs
- 25. Joint proposal writing by both the Northern and Southern CSOs should be encouraged in fundraising for aid from donor countries
- 26. There should be mutual learning and sharing between Nothern and Southern CSOs.

Donor and Civil Society Organisations Relations
- 27. Donors should enhance direct funding to Southern CSOs and reduce the role of intermediary agencies
- 28. Donors funding should target poverty reduction and development and not the donor national interests
- 29. Donors should recognise the mandate of CSOs and give them support and space to operate freely

Relations between Civil Society Organisations and their Constituencies
- 30. CSOs should be accountable to their constituencies more than to the donors
