Comparing the education sector results to the overall picture in 10 FTI countries
    Accra Agenda for Action – AAA
3 main areas that require further impetus
1. Broad-based ownership extending beyond
   governments to involve parliaments and local
   governments
2. More effective and inclusive partnerships
   enlarging the tent to emerging donors,
   foundations and civil society
3. Delivering results focusing on mutual
   accountability and impact.
       Key points of the AAA and
       implications for Education
1. OWNERSHIP
 Broaden country-level policy dialogue on
  development (§13)
 Country systems (§15):
  • Developing countries strengthen the quality of
    their country systems
  • Donors increase the use of recipients’ own
    frameworks and procedures

 Capacity development (§14)
      Key points of the AAA and
   implications for Education (cont.)
 2. MORE EFFECTIVE AND INCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIPS

 Enlarge the tent : welcoming all development
  partners:
      Middle-income countries(§19)
      Global funds (§19),
      Civil society organisations (§20)
 Reduce aid fragmentation: moving towards
  division of labour (§17)
      Key points of the AAA and
   implications for Education (cont.)
3. DELIVERING RESULTS – MUTUAL ACCOUNTABILITY

 Managing for results (§23)
 Accountability and transparency (§24 & 26b)
 Conditionality (§25)
 Medium-term predictability (§26)
              Accra Follow-up
 Implementing the Paris Declaration
  and Accra Agenda for Action
      Country-based action plans
      International monitoring
 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness
