Country's national development strategy is linked to medium-term expenditure framework and reflected in annual budgets. The degree to which governments take the lead in co-ordinating aid-funded activities is the subject of a specific commitment in the Paris Declaration. It is also a variable that seems to be subject to significant changes over time. Another dimension of ownership is the degree to which countries have development strategies that are clear and well operationalised, so that development efforts are effective and there is a robust basis for the alignment of aid with country policies. This is based on the World Bank's Results-Based National Development Strategies: Assessment and Challenges Ahead Report.
