“148. The New Partnership for Africa’s Development seeks increased ODA flows in the medium term, as well as reform of the ODA delivery system, to ensure that flows are more effectively utilised by recipient African countries. The New Partnership for Africa’s Development will establish a forum of African countries so as to develop a common African position on ODA reform, and to engage with the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) of the OECD and other donors in developing a charter underpinning the development partnership. This charter will identify the Economic Governance Initiative as a prerequisite for enhancing the capacity of African countries to utilise increased ODA flows, and will propose a complementary, independent assessment mechanism for monitoring donor performance. The New Partnership for Africa’s Development will support a PRSP Learning Group to engage in the PRSP process, together with the IMF and the World Bank.

“149. Actions
- Constitute an ODA forum for developing a common African position on ODA reform, as a counterpart to the OECD/DAC structure;

- Engage, through the ODA forum, with donor agencies to establish a charter for the development partnership, which would embody the principles outlined above;

- Support efforts of the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) to establish a PRSP Learning Group;

- Establish an independent mechanism for assessing donor and recipient country performance.”
