Abstract:The Fourth High‐Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (HLF4), held in Busan, Republic of Korea from 29 November to 1 December 2011, presented a critical opportunity for all development partners to work together on a new global compact to broaden and deepen the global development partnership. It was an opportunity to re‐energise the development agenda, so that developing countries supported by their development partners can achieve better results and reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The work on aid effectiveness and health, which has been developed and regularly reported on for the past four years in the context of the Working Party on Aid Effectiveness, has been the most tangible effort to bridge the debate on the quality of development co‐operation partnerships and the one on development results, including the MDGs.
