National measurement of aid effectiveness at the local level comes to a close

The Technical Secretary of International Cooperation (SETECI, by its Spanish acronym) and the Programme for the Articulation of Territorial Networks (ART) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), in coordination with the national associations of autonomous governments: the Ecuadorian Consortium of Provincial Governments (CONGOPE), the Association of Ecuadorian Municipalities (AME), the Council of Ecuadorian Parish Governments (CONAGOPARE) and the National Secretary of Planning and Development (SENPLADES), are completing the national application of a tool to measure the effectiveness of development cooperation at the local level.

This initiative has taken place within the framework of Ecuador´s 2009 signing of the Paris Declaration, which sets out 5 principles for the effectiveness of development cooperation: ownership, alignment, harmonization, managing for results and mutual accountability.

This process is particularly relevant considering that since 2011, Ecuador’s sub-national governments have taken up the management of international cooperation, following Resolution 009 of the National Council of Competences (CNC).

The tool to measure the effectiveness of development cooperation consists out of two index cards: the basic index card offers insight into the capacities of local governments to manage international cooperation, whereas the other index card measures the application of the principles of aid effectiveness at the local level, with 5 categories that correspond to the principles of the Paris Declaration and 15 sub-categories.

Furthermore, the tool includes several questions to include the gender perspective in this measurement, so as to see in how far this perspective has been taken into account in the application of the 5 principles of aid effectiveness, as well as its application in local governments’ territorial management.

Since October 2012, a team of measurers has traveled across all provinces and cantons of the country in order to measure the application of aid effectiveness at the local level. Altogether the tool has been applied to 216 of 221 Municipal Governments (98%), 100% of the Provincial Governments and the Governmental Council of the Galapagos Islands, 100% of the Provincial Associations of Parish Governments. Following the methodology, the tool was also applied to at least two actors of international cooperation (35 out of 48 actors in total) and two civil society actors (35 out of 48 actors in total) per province.

Once all the information has been processed, the participating institutions will share the results of this exercise - unique in the world - with Ecuador’s sub-national governments and their national associations, as well as with relevant national institutions and actors of international cooperation with a presence in the country. The final report shall illustrate the progress in implementing the principles of aid effectiveness at the territorial level, inciting spaces to reflect upon the results and feeding the strengthening of local governments’ capacities to manage international cooperation as well as the decision making process of Ecuador’s International Cooperation System (SECI).
