The aim of the pilot project as a programme of a pillar Global Partnership Initiative (GPI) on “Enhanced Use of Country Results Frameworks” of the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation (GPEDC) is to align development partner support with national development priorities. By design, the “country results frameworks” articulates the required and expected national level results. Hence, their effective use can help to ensure that both domestic and external resources are committed towards agreed national priorities. The ultimate success of CRFs will largely depend on country leadership through mechanisms aimed at integrating accountability for results in all country level development processes, with potential to link with both AU Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The pilot is working with a number of countries per region in Africa, Asia and Latin-America totalling nineteen (19) through designated regional coordination points namely; NEPAD Agency, Proyecto Mesoamérica (http://www.proyectomesoamerica.org/joomla/) and the Asia Pacific Development Effectiveness Facility (http://www.asia-pacific.undp.org/). The Africa region pilot covers Benin, Kenya, Mozambique, Madagascar, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Cameroon.
