  • Aid and Influenceby Stephen Browne

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 39.95

    Aid is always a means of influence: political, commercial, military and security-related. Some influence is benign, but much of it is coercive, even 'imperialistic'. Given the nature of aid, its effectiveness should be judged not only in developmental terms, but in terms of international relations. Even donors agree that, on both counts, the returns... more...

  • The Give-Back Solutionby Susan Skog

    Sourcebooks, Inc. 2009; US$ 14.99

  • For Protection and Promotionby Margaret E. Grosh

    World Bank Publications 2008; US$ 34.99

    Safety nets are noncontributory transfer programs targeted to the poor or vulnerable. They play important roles in social policy. Safety nets redistribute income, thereby immediately reducing poverty and inequality; they enable households to invest in the human capital of their children and in the livelihoods of their earners; they help households... more...

  • Budget Support as More Effective Aid?by Stefan Koeberle

    World Bank Publications 2006; US$ 24.99

    Budget support has become an increasingly important instrument in the context of a partnership-based approach to development assistance.

  • Aid That Worksby World Bank

    World Bank Publications 2006; US$ 19.99

    Research in recent years on aid effectiveness shows that significant obstacles in fragile states - insecurity, poor governance and weak implementation capacity - usually prevent aid from achieving the desired results in these environments. This study investigates the attributes and effectiveness of donor-supported programmes and projects that worked... more...

  • World Bank Assistance to Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africaby World Bank

    World Bank Publications 2007; US$ 24.99

    Sub-Saharan Africa is a critical development priority-it has some of the world's poorest countries and during the past two decades the number of poor in the Region has doubled, to 300 million-more than 40 percent of the Region's population. Africa remains behind on most of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and is unlikely to reach them... more...

  • We Make a Life by What We Giveby Richard B. Gunderman

    Indiana University Press 2008; US$ 15.25

    According to an old saying, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." In 22 brief and insightful essays, Richard B. Gunderman shows us that the key to more rewarding giving can be found by looking beyond mere donations of money. Exploring the ethical core of sharing and examining... more...

  • Debt Relief and Beyondby Carlos A. Primo Braga

    World Bank Publications 2009; US$ 19.99

    The history of debt relief goes back several decades. It reveals that a country’s accumulation of unsustainable debt stems from such factors as deficiencies in macroeconomic management, adverse terms-of-trade shocks, and poor governance. Debt-relief initiatives have provided debt-burdened countries with the opportunity for a fresh start, but whether... more...

  • Capacity Development in Practiceby Alan Fowler; Jan Ubels

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 37.95

    The international development community invests billions of dollars to improve organisational capacity. But real-life practice is poorly understood and undervalued as a distinct professional domain. Written by practitioners, this innovative publication is designed to make capacity development more professional and increasingly effective in achieving... more...
