These programs and projects will work towards enhanced the ownership of results, harmonisation and alignment, results orientation and accountability of external aid. It will also customise the best international practices and solutions in aid coordination and management.

The agreement will provide a framework for joint work towards improving aid coordination and effectiveness, as well as systems and mechanisms in place, including institutional and human resources capacity. This will help to coordinate and regulate aid flows in Uzbekistan. This will be achieved through improved aid architecture, the introduction of a results framework and customisation of aid effectiveness indicators and respective assessment processes;
