Development Partners Coordination Forum
In September 2007, the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning (MFDP) launched the Development Partners Coordination Forum for purposes of coordinating all development partners’ activities in the country. The Forum is a two-way forum for information sharing on government policies, aid modalities and aid coordination in general. It comprises Government of Botswana representatives, Heads of Diplomatic Missions, bilateral and multilateral organisations, both resident and non-resident. The MFDP through European Commission funding has developed a donor database to enhance donor coordination so as to improve the quality of aid and to facilitate the provision of information on Official Development Assistance (ODA) in Botswana. This would facilitate the analysis and monitoring of ODA data to see the trend of external assistance to Botswana and the major providers of ODA.
