Briefing Report on Busan GP and Outcome of the HSGOC

This Report is a follow up to previous briefings provided to relevant Ministries of African Union Member States transmitted through the Embassies in Addis Ababa ; the NEPAD Heads of State and Government Orientation Committee (HSGO), through the NEPAD Steering Committee ; and the Permanent Representatives Sub-Committee (PRC) on NEPAD based in Addis Ababa.

It will be recalled that the 4th High Level Forum (HLF4) on Aid Effectiveness took place in Busan, South Korea, from November 29 to December 2, 2011. Busan marked a milestone for Africa, as for the first time, the Continent presented a strong coordinated voice guided
by the African Consensus and Position on Development Effectiveness. The Position was developed through a multi-stakeholder process and endorsed by the 18th AU Assembly (Assembly/AU/7/(XVIII). It focused on Aid reforms and South-South Cooperation with capacity development as core driver of effective development.

The African Position further underscored the importance of the Continent taking full responsibility for its own development and the need for development partners to align aid delivery to country priorities for sustainable results.

The Busan Partnership Outcome Document called for the establishment of a “new, inclusive and representative Global Partnership (GP) for Effective Development Cooperation to support and ensure accountability for the implementation of commitments at the political level” (BPd 36). In January 2012, the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness (WPEFF1) set up the Post-Busan Interim Group (PBIG) to define the governance structure and
monitoring framework of the new Global Partnership. The proposals by the group were tabled at the final meeting of the WP-EFF in Paris from 28-29 June 2012.

In furtherance of the Decision of the Assembly/AU/7/(XVIII) of the 18th African Union Assembly2, the AU Commission and NEPAD Agency continued to actively take forward the post-Busan agenda including the shaping of the new Global Partnership through inclusive, Africa-wide consultations. In their coordination role, the African Union Commission and the NEPAD Agency working with representatives of the Governments of Rwanda, South Africa and Mali participated in the PBIG deliberations guided by the African Consensus and Position on Development Effectiveness.

The new Global Partnership was launched in June 2012, replacing the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness (WP-EFF). The mandate of the GP covers 2012-2015, after which it could be reviewed and updated to take into account emerging global issues and the post-MDG framework.
