The implementation of the
Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness and its implications for donor activity
and coordination are of great relevance to DCED members. By defining and disseminating
good practice and increasing the capacity of development practitioners, the DCED
seeks to contribute to the realisation of the Paris Declaration, which aims to ensure
that "donors' actions are more harmonised, transparent and collectively effective".

4th High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, Busan, November 2011
- Joint Statement on Public-Private Cooperation
The DCED has become the 42nd signatory to the Joint
Statement on Expanding and Enhancing Public-Private Cooperation, agreed
at the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan. The statement recognizes
the critical importance of the for-profit private sector as a key engine of economic
growth, job creation, innovation and sustainable development, and encourages greater
cooperation between the public and the private sectors to achieve development goals.
It highlights five shared principles of public-private collaboration and provides
examples of potential coordinated actions and of various partnership arrangements.
