Commitments made by the international community to development goals and aid effectiveness principles, development studies, and development partners.
Over the past decade, Canada and the international community have rallied around a shared vision of development goals and aid effectiveness principles. This vision is expressed mainly through key international commitments. As a result of these commitments, Canada, in 2009, developed its aid effectiveness agenda.
At the 2010 G-8 Summit, Canada launched the Muskoka Initiative. This new set of commitments will improve the health of mothers, newborns and children and reduce the number of preventable deaths in developing countries.
