Busan was a turning point in terms of civil society participation along with governments, donors and partner countries on the Aid and Development Effectiveness arena. This opened a new chapter in the aid architecture that has legitimacy, ensures meaningful inclusion of all development actors especially those from the recipients.
Despite efforts made in recent years to involve civil society organizations (CSOs) in the formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of development policy processes, participation in decision making most government still lies low.
We wish to undertake a research in Benin on how the government donors and the civil society organizations engage on issues of aid and development effectiveness.
In this regard, ROA Africa is calling on all our partners and interested parties to submit views and contributions in trying to shape this research that seek to answer the following questions:
- The nature of the current Policy and legal framework in place
- The Capacity of both public and private institutions to engage with each other in issues of aid and development effectiveness
- Role of civil society in setting the agenda and the opportunities that current exists currently.
- Challenges they face and what can be done to counter them.
Your contribution will be highly appreciated. The final research finding will be posted in the website for public view
