The Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness expresses the international community's consensus on the direction for reforming aid delivery and management to achieve improved effectiveness and results. Principles. The Paris Declaration is grounded on five mutually reinforcing principles: ownership, alignment, harmonization, managing for results, and mutual accountability. The Paris Declaration contains 56 partnership commitments to improve the quality of aid. For example, under ownership, partner countries commit to exercise leadership in developing and implementing their national development strategies, and donors commit to respect partner countries? leadership and help strengthen their capacity to exercise it. Indicators and Targets. The Paris Declaration also sets out 12 indicators to provide a measurable and evidence-based way to track progress, and sets targets for 11 of the indicators for the year 2010.
