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. There will be two rounds of monitoring of these commitments before meeting in 2008 to review progress in implementing this Declaration. Commitments from the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness include: Developing countries will exercise effective leadership over their development policies, strategies, and to coordinate development actions; Donor countries will base their overall support on receiving countries' national development strategies, institutions, and procedures; Donor countries will work so that their actions are more harmonized, transparent, and collectively effective; All countries will manage resources and improve decision-making for results; Donor and developing countries pledge that they will be mutually accountable for development results.
The Paris Declaration is supported by the Accra Agenda for Action, a statement made in Accra, Ghana, on 4 September 2008 by Ministers of developing and donor countries responsible for promoting development and Heads of multilateral and bilateral development institutions. The document also includes methodological notes on the indicators of progress and a list of participating countries.
