Development is the business of the people and governments of the countries concerned. Their own policies and institutions will remain the key to sustainable improvements in people’s lives. The development community can merely help the process, and in particular facilitate faster progress. The two key ways the development community can do so are by promoting positive changes in the conditions that poor countries face in the world – the “coherence” agenda – and by delivering more, and more effective, development assistance where it can be put to good use. The DAC can and should play a role in both – a role of advocacy and support to the first and one of leadership in the second. The DAC Chair’s overview in Chapter 1 of this report is built around these issues. The report goes on to analyse, in Chapter 2, the evolution of aid flows to developing countries, including recent trends in the volume and allocation of DAC members’ aid and attempts to isolate the factors that determine the size of their efforts, and to assess the impact of policy ideas in shaping their development co-operation programmes. Chapter 3 shows the progress that still needs to be made to meet the Millennium Development Goals, while Chapter 4 gives information on the aid strategies, programmes and policies of DAC members – and non-DAC OECD members - in terms of aid volume and programme objectives. It shows that aid increased by 7% in 2002, the highest real level achieved in a decade. And prospects are good for improved aid volume and effectiveness.
