Making aid work better for participants and improving national planning processes for sustainable development in the bargain
Book/Report, 2 pages
Aid is one of the means nations have employed to achieve a vision of global prosperity: by supporting the development of weaker nations, it aims to increase security, well-being, and economic opportunity for all. Since aid emerged as an international institution following World War II, its role has steadily increased. The opinion piece reviews the Paris Declaration's principles and provides case studies from Tanzania and Vietnam who have successfully introduced structures and mechanisms to help them set their own directions with less donor interference.
