The Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness ( 2 March 2005) is presented in three sections: the Statement of Resolve set out in Section I, the Partnership Commitments stated in Section II and twelve Indicators of Progress listed in Section III. The agreed targets are in the areas of ownership, alignment, harmonisation, managing for results and mutual accountability.
