Sammanfattning (abstract):
The increased demand for reporting on results, or the so-called results agenda, has been a top-priority for many development actors over the last decade. The demand for evidence of results has intensified and new instruments for aid delivery, such as results strategies and payment by results, are now dominating many donors’ development agendas. One of the main features of these instruments is that they focus on results, rather than on planning and implementing development cooperation. Sweden is one of the donor countries that have embraced the results agenda, and Sweden’s bilateral development strategies should focus on achieved results, rather than on how Swedish development cooperation is implemented. However, findings from a recent study in Mozambique suggest that there also have been changes in Swedish requirements on how results should be reported. Instead of focusing on evidence of results, the recipients of development assistance are also required to report on how results are achieved. Planning and implementation are thus still considered key issues in Swedish development cooperation. The reasons behind this focus are often described in terms of accountability and control. Concepts such as learning and trust are, on the other hand, seldom, or never, used in relation to implementing and reporting on development cooperation. Reporting requirements thus affect the relations between donors and recipients of development assistance. The aim of this paper is to explore how Sweden’s development relations with Mozambique are influenced by these changes in requirements on reporting development results.
