2011 Conference Videos: Smart Aid - Not Just More. Better.
This session will address the issue of how we can drastically improve the quality and effectiveness of development aid. At a donor government level, mature discussion about aid approaches is often crippled by an over-emphasis on the amount of aid given, while issues of quality and improving approaches to aid tend to be under-discussed. This session will explore how to improve donor interventions at an implementation level. It will also delve into the issue of how to shift the focus of development aid at a political/policy level in order to improve the quality of development assistance, rather than remaining narrowly focused on the amount of aid given.
