2011 Mutual Review of Development Effectiveness in Africa - Interim Report 

The Mutual Review of Development Effectiveness is an exercise in mutual accountability undertaken jointly by the UN Economic Commission for Africa and the OECD following a request of NEPAD Heads of State and Government in 2003.

A meeting of AU/ECA Finance Ministers in March 2011 reaffirmed the value of this exercise and asked for more regular reports to be produced. In response to this request, this is an interim update of the last report published at the MDG Review Summit in September 2010. It is based on information available as at mid-April 2011. A full report will be published later in 2011.

The report follows the same structure as previous reports, divided into 4 main ‘clusters’ of issues covering: sustainable economic growth, investing in people, good governance and financing for development.


MRDE 2010 English

This is the third review undertaken jointly by the UN Economic Commission for Africa and the OECD. Its purpose is to assess:

  • what has been done by Africa and its development partners to deliver commitments in relation to development in Africa;
  • what results have been achieved, and;
  • what the key future priorities are

There have been enormous changes since the last review was published in January 2009. This review is intended to reflect these changes and feed into the UN MDG Review Summit in September 2010. See remarks made by Angel Gurría, OECD Secretary-General, at the launch of the MRDE in New York on 20th September 2010. Read more


2009 Mutual Review of Development Effectiveness‌

The Mutual Review of Development Effectiveness in Africa Report 2009 is both an exercise in 'mutual accountability'- assessing what has been done to deliver on commitments to Africa's development, and a review of 'development effectiveness'- assessing what results have been achieved.

It was undertaken jointly by task teams from UNECA and OECD, in close consultation with the NEPAD Secretariat, and with inputs from African and international institutions and civil society.

The main report is composed of brief overviews of the four main topics, and key cross-cutting issues, followed by a series of 2-page summaries highlighting findings and recommendations for the 15 "focus issues".


 

2005 Mutual Review of Development Effectiveness in Africa

This first Mutual Review of Development Effectiveness in Africa has been prepared jointly by our two organisations at the request of the NEPAD.


In making this request, NEPAD leaders were seeking to establish a way of tracking performance by both African countries and their OECD development partners against the publicly stated commitments that have been made on all sides since the landmark events of the founding of NEPAD, the Monterrey Consensus and the G8 Action Plan for Africa.
