Wordle word cloud Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation

Just a quick Wordle cloud on the official 'outcome' document from the Busan summit...so many 'plastic words' of the aid effectiveness discourse that deserve a second, closer look and more analysis...

Update: Because it looked like fun and also because a break-down into different sections could be interesting, I decided to create separate word clouds for every headline/part of the document. Note that the different sections differ considerably in length and that I have not used any other filters or tools other than copy-pasting the contents of the official Busan document into Wordle.
