The World Bank has a question; how can it improve its Science of Delivery? The Science of Delivery means "to learn better and adapt more quickly when things work well or when they don't work well and take some of the lessons of that learning and apply them elsewhere." And this comes with structural reforms as well as a change of culture. "We are quite excited about it", said Jeffrey Lewis, Chief Economist of the Global Practices at the World Bank.

European Union external assistance, which accounts for half of development aid, must demonstrate that development policy achieves results. A recent workshop in Brussels looked at how a results-based approach that considers desired outcomes from the beginning can improve development cooperation. 
The European Development Days drew more than 5000 participants to Brussels this week for debate and discussion on how to improve development outcomes. We took a small camera to the floor to ask people what they thought the priorities should be in the framework that will replace the Millennium Development Goals. 
Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals will not be limited by an overall lack of money, but rather will depend on “the way finance is mobilised and used”. That’s the message from the European Report on Development 2015, released this week.

When development partners met in Busan, South Korea in 2011, one of their aims was to make aid more effective. The event launched the Global Partnership for Effective Development and Cooperation, underpinned by the principles of country ownership, focus on results, inclusive partnerships, transparency and accountability. The EU also committed to Joint Programming, where donors ensure they are targeting complementary sectors, such as education, health or infrastructure. Over three years later, this effort is well underway.
