The aim of the 2-year pilot programme is to scale-up implementation of the international agreement on “use of country results frameworks (CRF) as the basis for development cooperation programming” with the aim to align development partner support with national development priorities (GPEDC Indicator 1). By design, the “country results frameworks” articulates the required and expected national level results. Hence, their effective use can help to ensure that both domestic and external resources are committed towards agreed national priorities. The ultimate success of CRFs will largely depend on country leadership through mechanisms aimed at integrating accountability for results in all country level development processes, with potential to link with both Agenda 2063 and the 2030 Agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The pilot is working with a few countries per region (Africa, Asia, Latin-America) through designated regional coordination points. In Africa, the seven (7) pilot countries are Benin, Cameroon, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique and Uganda.
