Report by the Independent Expert on foreign debt

Visit undertaken from 14 - 18 February 2011

Issues raised: (taken from press release)

It appears to me that there is inadequate oversight of the aid projects that are active in the country. The large amount of aid being provided in Solomon Islands imposes a number of responsibilities on the part of both the Government and the donors. For this reason, I urge both parties to coordinate their actions and to put in place effective monitoring mechanisms to guarantee efficient and transparent use of funds and to assess the impact of development aid. In addition, progress should be measured by reference to the legal standards elaborated in the international human rights instruments (such as the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the Convention on the Rights of the Child) to which both the Solomon Islands and donor countries are parties, as well as internationally agreed targets such as the MDGs.
