From 29 November to 1 December 2011, approximately 2000 development partners will convene at the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Busan, Republic of Korea, to review global progress in improving the impact and effectiveness of aid, and make commitments that set a new agenda for development.

  • share global experiences in delivering the best results; and,
  • agree on a Busan Outcome Document to further enhance efforts globally and within countries to make aid more effective in reducing poverty and achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
