The international aid system
We promote ways to improve the effectiveness of aid and development co-operation. We approach this issue from three angles: at the supra-national, individual development agency and individual recipient government level.
We promote ways to improve the effectiveness of aid and development cooperation, approaching this issue from three angles:
- at the supra-national level by working to redesign the international aid system;
- at the level of individual development agencies by working to improve the way aid is delivered; and
- at the level of individual recipient governments by working to improve the way aid is received and managed.
Our work contributes to mechanisms to enhance transparency and accountability in the aid system. We are at the forefront of new thinking on market based approaches, transparency and new forms of accountability to reform of international aid architecture.
We provide expert opinion and policy advice on ways to progress on the aid effectiveness agenda, focusing more directly on:
- reducing fragmentation in the aid system;
- providing greater space for recipient leadership;
- promoting strategies for aid predictability; and
- taking greater account of the political-institutional challenges of bringing about stronger ownership and accountability within the aid relationship.
