Delivering Aid Differently: Lessons from the Field

About the eBook

For many years after the Second World War, development assistance was built on a relatively stable system of aid from rich countries to poor countries, delivered mainly through government institutions. The twenty-first century has seen this model supplanted by a new configuration in which new donors and nongovernmental organizations play increasingly important roles. But the entry of many new players into what is now a $200 billion “aid industry” demands fresh kinds of coordination to be truly effective. Delivering Aid Differently provides a valuable overview of aid programs today, focusing on what works and what still needs improvement.Nearly every nation today is part of the “aid business,” either as a recipient or as a donor. To date, most analyses of aid effectiveness have been developed by scholars from donor countries. This volume differs substantially by providing assessments fromrecipient-nation authors who consider the impacts of aid in their own countries. The volume closes with studies that address more broadly the features of successful aid coordination tools. Looking toward the future, Delivering Aid Differently makes a convincing argument that differentiated delivery of aid, from a diverse group of donors, acting to change development dynamics—supported by shared networks of high-quality information on needs, aid inputs, and aid outcomes—can yield benefits of tens of billions of dollars a year by preventing waste while still providing fair and sustainable assistance.Topics includeOverview: Delivering Aid Differently (Wolfgang Fengler and Homi Kharas)Aceh, Indonesia (Harry Masyrafah and Jock MJA McKeon)Cambodia (Chanboreth Ek and Hach Sok)Ethiopia (Getnet Alemu)Kenya (Francis M.
