Commitment to Action

Better Results for Less Debt

Commitment by

The Brookings Institution

In 2005, the United Nations Foundation and the Brookings Institution committed to establish Better Results for Less Debt, a program that will help developing countries achieve better results with issues such as health, education, water, and the environment, and consequently, on poverty reduction and development through improved aid funding techniques that avoid exacerbating countries' debt burdens.
Since 2005, Better Results for Less Debt has engaged a number of donors, including the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), to monitor progress of performance-based projects and evaluate these efforts in the context of global thinking in this field. The program also has observed genuine health improvements as a result of new monitoring and reporting requirements, which have greatly increased accuracy and accountability and, consequently, the quality of performance.
