Harmonisation and alignment: literature review

There is an abundance of literature on aid effectiveness, harmonisation and alignment. However, there is less research available on how the aid effectiveness agenda is being implemented in the water sector. The purpose of this literature review is to critically analyse the published body of knowledge on harmonisation and alignment with reference to the water sector, and to make some comparisons with other sectors, such as basic education and health.

The first section of this review provides a background on aid effectiveness and defines harmonisation and alignment, including the challenges and benefits of harmonisation. The second section addresses harmonisation and alignment in the water sector and identifies lessons to date. The third section looks at progress in harmonisation and alignment in other sectors such as basic education and health. The study is then concluded with key findings and recommendations. [authors abstract]

Abstract

There is an abundance of literature on aid effectiveness, harmonisation and alignment. However, there is less research available on how the aid effectiveness agenda is being implemented in the water sector. The purpose of this literature review is to critically analyse the published body of knowledge on harmonisation and alignment with reference to the water sector, and to make some comparisons with other sectors, such as basic education and health.

The first section of this review provides a background on aid effectiveness and defines harmonisation and alignment, including the challenges and benefits of harmonisation. The second section addresses harmonisation and alignment in the water sector and identifies lessons to date. The third section looks at progress in harmonisation and alignment in other sectors such as basic education and health. The study is then concluded with key findings and recommendations. [authors abstract]
