On 29 November ministers and senior officials from 160 countries will gather in Busan, South Korea, to decide on the future of development aid.
In the run up to the Fourth High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, the BBC World Service held a briefing to assess the event's significance, how it should be reported in the media and the barriers to aid effectiveness.
Solomon Mugera, the BBC World Service editor, Africa, was joined by Brenda Killen, head of the Aid Effectiveness Division at the OECD Development Assistance Committee, and James Deane, head of policy and thematic at the BBC World Service Trust.
