Pacific Islands on Busan outcomes

The Pacific Islands Forum countries will use the Cairns Compact on Strengthening Development Coordination (Forum Compact) to follow up on the outcomes of the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness which ended in the city of Busan, Republic of Korea this week.

Speaking on behalf of the Pacific Islands Forum in the final plenary session of the HLF4, Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, Tuiloma Neroni Slade said the Forum Compact adopted in 2009, “has already gone beyond aid effectiveness to focus on development effectiveness and is the primary mechanism which the Pacific region will use to follow-up on and localize the outcomes of the Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation.”

The Forum Secretary General highlighted three processes as instrumental to operationalising the Busan outcomes. These were:
• the annual peer review of partner country systems as an excellent opportunity for countries of the region to share knowledge and for peer to peer learning;

• track the extent to which development partners’ behaviour is actually changing in line with development effectiveness principles; and

• continue to track progress towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals in the Pacific.

“Positive progress will provide a measure of the effectiveness of development efforts in the Pacific,” said Slade.
