CSOs On the Road from Accra to Busan
Since the 2008 Accra High Level Forum, hundreds of CSOs have been collaborating globally and in their various countries through the BetterAid Platform to bring about significant reforms in development cooperation. These reforms are aimed at creating a more equitable and just architecture for development cooperation. They seek to
strengthen the efforts of all development actors to focus on democratic development, social justice and the realization of human rights in the face of mounting impacts global economic, social and climatic crises on poor and marginalized populations around the world. They seek an effective enabling environment for CSOs contributing to development outcomes around the world.
BetterAid participated alongside governments and donors in the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness and in the fourth High Level Forum in Busan, Korea, in November 2011. They came to Busan with a global CSO consensus on Key Messages and Proposals, based on two years of extensive country, regional and sectoral outreach and
consultations around the world. This outreach, was facilitated by IBON International and the Reality of Aid network. The direct inclusion of CSOs in the Working Party and in the negotiations for the outcome of Busan were highly unique policy experiences for CSO policy engagement in a multilateral arena.
CSOs have also acknowledged their responsibilities to improve the effectiveness and accountability of their development efforts. Since July 2008, thousands of CSOs have taken up the challenge to define the principles and practices that should shape their own effectiveness in development as distinct, diverse and independent development actors. These initiatives came together in an extraordinary journey of self-reflection through the global CSO-led Open Forum on CSO Development Effectiveness. Through country, regional and thematic consultations, CSO reflected and reached a global consensus on the Istanbul Principles for CSO Development Effectiveness and the Siem Reap Consensus on the International Framework for CSO Development Effectiveness, frameworks for implementation of the Principles.
