Overview

The Asia region is concerned with the issues of official development assistance (ODA), monitoring international finance institutions (IFIs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), militarisation, and private sector and public-private partnerships (PPPs), all of which are easily linked to effective development cooperation.

Members of the constituency, who are also members of the Reality of Aid-Asia Pacific are represented in the platform People Over Profit, a campaign network that unites people’s movements and NGOs across the globe to stop free trade agreements (FTAs) and corporate plunder.

Overview

The Europe constituency is diverse: most of the countries in the region are already part of the European Union (EU), while many countries from Eastern Europe are still in the transition stage to become members of the EU. The members work on inclusive development partnerships, transparency and accountability and civic space and enabling environment. Some engage in migration issues and human rights. Those who are already active within the constituency find it easy to link their concerns to the principles of effective development cooperation (EDC). Appreciation of EDC principles differ among organisations, and engagement happens in various ways and arenas. Some members of CONCORD, which are also active in the ICSO constituency, work together on the quality of aid through the annual AidWatch report, monitoring the quantity and quality of official development assistance (ODA) of members states of the EU. Members from non-EU countries, on the other hand, focus on key capacity development areas that are needed to qualitatively enhance civic space.

Overview

The MENA region faces long-standing armed conflict and wars of aggression including proxy wars. It is also one of the most, if not the most, unequal region in the world in terms of income inequality. According to the World Inequality Lab, in the period 1990-2016, the top 10% of the population in the Middle East accounted for, on average, 60-66% of the region’s income, while the bottom 50% accounted for, on average, less than 10% of regional income. In this context, the region focuses on development cooperation with a rights-based approach, private sector accountability, inter-regional development cooperation and monitoring development actors.

Overview

The Pacific Islands region is comprised of 23 countries and territories that are far from homogenous. These countries and territories are linked by their common denominator of being situated on the vast stretch of the biggest ocean in the world, but they have a lot of differences in size, geography, history, culture, and economies. They share a lot in common in terms of geographic isolation, ecological fragility – including being among the most vulnerable to the impact of climate change and natural hazards – and limited resources. Many of these countries depend heavily on official development assistance, overseas remittances and importation. Members of the Pacific constituency work on business and human rights, climate change and displacement, seabed mining and extractive industries. A major area of work is engaging governments and their institutions in relation to development policy and in enabling environment for civil society.
