Broader Ownership for Development
The first of the five key principles in the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness is "ownership". This principle implies recipient‐country control of aid‐financed development strategies and policies.

Issues of conditionality, knowledge generation, socially inclusive implementation and good monitoring dominate the debate. This chapter provides an ample menu of recommendations to resolve them.
