Key considerations

Division of labour proposal by donor

Next steps
Rationale
 Donor
preferences tend to prevail when
determining sectors of intervention
 Risk
of under-investment in productive
sectors threatening to undermine full
implementation of the EDPRS
 Some
sectors are over-crowded resulting
in increased transaction costs from
multiple partners
An evolving international context....

The EU in its 2755 General Affairs Council
Meeting held in Luxembourg, (2006) stated that” ...
In any case, the EU should always play an active
role in promoting complementarity and division of
labour.....”

Accra Agenda for Action (2008) commits GoR and
donors to enhance division of labour.
Anticipated benefits

Reduced transaction costs via more streamlined donor
relations, reduced missions and better coordinated policy
dialogue;

Better financial management and reporting by reducing multiple
requirements;

Reduction of donor overhead costs through pooling / delegation
of specialist advisory staff in country offices;

Improved quality of program delivery and management through
increased use of delegated cooperation / silent partnerships;

Reduced risk of duplication of efforts and easier coordination
through easier tracking of aid.
Criteria

Financial/Budget gap for EDPRS priority sectors

Ability to provide preferred aid modality

Historical track record in sector & contribution to key
development results

Mandate of donor (e.g. vertical funds or UN system, GF)

Donor’s record against a range of aid effectiveness
indicators as stipulated in the Donor Performance
Assessment Framework in a given sector

Donor expertise and experience globally
Methodology

Questionnaires sent to be filled by DPs

Interviews conducted

Where information on status of cooperation
was available, donors were not contacted

3 active sectors per donor but a donor may
decide to be active in less than three sectors
and delegate cooperation

Analysis

On average, one donor is active in six sectors, this may
cause management problems on the side of donors and
government

Key sectors like Transport and ICT , Manufacturing,
Services and off-farm industry: currently starved due to
concentration in sectors like decentralization &
education.

This creates imbalances and impedes EDPRS
implementation

DoL should not affect…..
 Support
to basket funds (eg. PFM, NISR)
 Support
to exceptional Expenditures (eg.
Demobilization, Regional projects,
Emergency assistance)
 Projects/
 Total
programs under current strategies
aid to the country
