On December 5, a seminar titled "Beyond the Busan High Level Forum – The Future of Aid Effectiveness" was held at JICA-RI in Tokyo. Building on the discussions at the Fourth High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (Busan HLF-4) held in Busan, Korea from November 29 - December 1, officials from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and JICA exchanged ideas on aid effectiveness in Latin America.
Dr. Koldo Echebarríaf of the IDB kicked off the seminar with a presentation, "Organizational Strategy of IDB: A Results-Based Accountability Framework." The manager and chief development effectiveness officer of IDB's Office of Strategic Planning and Development Effectiveness referred to IDB's ongoing efforts in achieving measurable results, and concluded that ensuring accountability will strengthen IDB's capital base and ultimately heighten development effectiveness.
Hajime Takeuchi, the deputy director general of JICA's Latin America and the Caribbean Department, followed with a presentation titled, "Busan HLF Agendas from a LAC (Latin America and the Caribbean) Operation Perspective." He described JICA's triangular cooperation programs (joint assistance for developing countries with other emerging countries) promoted in LAC since 1981, and explained the concept and modern-day meaning of partnering with private companies. Takeuchi also introduced JICA's recent activities, such as the partnership with IDB and the launching of a syndicated loan scheme for Latin America's energy-saving/renewable energy sector.
