This is the weekly e-alert on ACP-EU News.

Information provided in weekly e-alerts is available via daily updated RSS feeds which can be found on the ECDPM website’s News and Events page www.ecdpm.org/news.
You can view all information or select feeds according to specific topics of interest. You may find these easier to read. And they are also available to any organisation to post on its own internal or external websites. This e-alert and previous issues are also available in PDF format at: http://www.ecdpm.org/Web_ECDPM/Web/Content/Content.nsf/7732def81dddfa7ac1256c240034fe65/2f9cc239d94a300bc1257344004ddd21?OpenDocument

I need to improve the quality of the weekly e-alert with information and analysis from beyond what’s available on the internet. If you have a moment to pass on anything that could usefully be included I’d be most grateful. It will be non-attributable of course (unless you prefer otherwise). If you provide information, then others will too with information useful to you.

All the best,

Melissa

*ECDPM’s Gwen Corre introduces initial results of the ActionAid-ECDPM study Whither EC Aid
Brussels, November 5. How good is the aid provided by European countries and the EC? How do we know how good it is, and what are some of the issues and questions that need to be addressed.
This session brought together two current pieces of research that shed some light on these questions.
First, Chief architect of the Commitment to Development Index, David Roodman introduced the CDI's construction and results for 2007 [Read a short report on the launch in The Hague o! n 2 November].
Second, ECDPM’s Gwen Corre introduced initial results of the ActionAid/ECDPM study ‘Whither EC Aid?’ that examines the added value and comparative advantage of EC aid, revisiting the debate how EC aid effectiveness is assessed.

*Coordination and Complementarity of European Assistance to Local Development. Evaluation
Three-Cs Information Brief No. 6: Evaluation of Coordination and Complementarity of European Assistance to Local Development
This Information Brief presents the main findings of a joint-evaluation study focusing on the performance of European Member States and the European Commission with respect to their coordination of assistance to local development.
The evaluation on which this information brief is based was commissioned and managed by the Department for Evaluation and ! Internal Audit of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), and supported by the Evaluation Services of Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, and the Netherlands.
The evaluators conclude that the European Union Member States and the Commission have a remarkably low level of performance when it comes to achieving value added effects and impacts of coordination efforts with each other in general, and specifically in the area of support for local development. Given their behaviour, systems, procedures, insufficient devolution of decision-making and absence of management incentives for good coordination performance, the evaluators conclude that donors have created serious impediments to local ownership and have put in place important obstacles to aid effectiveness and balanced relationships based on mutual accountability.

*World Bank Africa Development Indicators 2007
Many African economies appear to be growing at the fast and steady rates needed to put a dent on the region’s high poverty rate and attract global investment. Something d! ecidedly new is on the horizon in Africa, something that began in the mid-1990s. Many African economies appear to have turned the corner and moved to a path of faster and steadier economic growth. Their performance in 1995–2005 reverses the collapses in 1975–85 and the stagnations in 1985–95. And for the fi rst time in three decades, they are growing in tandem with the rest of the world. Average growth in the Sub-Saharan economies was 5.4 percent in 2005 and 2006, and the consensus projections are that growth will remain strong. Leading the way are the oil and mineral exporters, thanks to high prices. But 18 non-mineral economies, with 36 percent of Sub-Saharan Africa’s people, have also been doing well. Better economic policy and performance will also be at the core of improving African’s well-being. This year’s Africa Development Indicators essay explores the patterns of growth in Sub-Saharan Africa over the past three decades. It finds that the volatility of growth—an outcome of conflict, governance, and world commodity prices—has been greater than in any other region. Volatility has dampened expectations and investments—and has obscured some periods of good performance for some countries. The essay shows that pickups in growth were seldom sustained—indeed, that they were often followed by ferocious declines, and hence, Africa’s fl at economic performance over 1975–2005.
