Progress from Specificity: How to Monitor the Paris Declaration in the Malawi Education Sector
Collins, Laura
Prospects: Quarterly Review of Comparative Education, v39 n2 p163-183 Jun 2009
At the time of writing, it is not possible to measure progress accurately, or even assess the baseline status of aid effectiveness in the education sector. Twelve targets en route to the five objectives of the Paris Declaration were set and agreed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD); they were to be measured nationally and monitored internationally. These indicators, though, are not specific to either the sector as a whole, or any individual country. While they provide a useful framework within which the effectiveness of aid can be pursued, specificity must be demanded at country and sector level to maximize the potential of harmonized, aligned, government-owned, accountable, and results-managed aid. This article takes a step towards addressing this problem, documenting for the first time the sector- and country-specific targets and indicators for the education sector in Malawi.
