Cairo High Level Symposium, January 2008

A second symposium will be held in Cairo on January 19-20, where the participants will review development cooperation trends under the theme of ‘results-oriented development cooperation: pursuing national interests’. Topics to be address will include the nature of conditionality, including recent experiences with outcome-based conditionality; examples of successful South-South and triangular development cooperation; and the possibility of rethinking the current framework for assessing aid quality, including aid effectiveness, based on principles such as national leadership and mutual accountability. The Cairo symposium will serve to inform the consultative process and analytical preparations for the 2008 DCF.
