Inclusion of new actors on the basis of shared principles and differential commitments**

14. Today's complex architecture for development co-­operation has evolved from the North-South paradigm. Distinct from the traditional relationship between aid providers and recipients, developing nations and a number of emerging economies have become important providers of South-South development co-­operation. They remain developing countries and still face poverty at home. As such, they remain eligible to benefit from development co-­operation provided by others, yet they have increasingly taken upon themselves the responsibility to share experiences and co-­operate with other developing countries. The Paris Declaration did not address the complexity of these new actors, while the Accra Agenda for Action recognised their importance and specificities. While North-­South co-­operation remains the main form of development co-operation, South-­South co-­operation continues to evolve, providing additional diversity of resources for development. At Busan, we now all form an integral part of a new and more inclusive development agenda, in which these actors participate on the basis of common goals, shared principles and differential commitments. On this same basis, we welcome the inclusion of civil society, the private sector and other actors.
