Coordination has been widely recognized in both the SSR and international community as a crucial element to reform and development processes. Within the SSR context, coordination can improve effectiveness, credibility, management and sustainability of projects and programmes as well as minimize duplication efforts and unnecessary spending.
To further support coordination mechanisms, the international community conducted and produced a variety of high levels fora, conferences and policy documents. These include:
• The Rome Declaration for Harmonisation (2002)
• The Paris Declaration (2005)
• The Accra Agenda (2008)
• The Intergovernmental 3C Conference (2009)
• The Busan Agreement (2011)
This executive summary prepared by ISSAT will provide a brief overview of these policy documents.
