Video Blog by Dochas Director Hans Zomer

Here are some key stories from the 4th High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness that I've compiled (including a few for background):

Busan: the stakes couldn't be higher

As you may have noticed, the Guardian has gone into overdrive covering this forum. Lots of good stuff from the Global Development folks there.

A special mention to Save the Children/World Vision who pulled an interesting/weird stunt at the forum!

"The message of the stunt is that aid plays a vital role in the health of children and mothers, but donors should take steps to improve the quality of aid so more lives can be saved."
