Joint Evaluation of the Paris Declaration (Irish Aid)


Irish Aid

Evaluation of Ireland’s aid effectiveness commitments

This evaluation assesses Ireland’s ability to implement its international aid effectiveness commitments, as set out in the 2005 Paris Declaration and the 2008 Accra Agenda for Action. It was one of several similar exercises that contribute to a wider OECD/DAC evaluation into aid effectiveness.

This exercise primarily considered three institutional dimensions; a) commitment, b) capacity and c) incentives within Irish Aid (and across government) to further aid effectiveness. Like the other donor HQ evaluations, the focus was institutional capacity, not conclusions on how well Ireland was implementing its commitments, although the team were asked to comment on some specific achievements.
