Several currents of transformation are acting to disrupt the conventional development model of north-south flows of public resources and knowledge, including changes in actors, motivations, and power relations.
This project sets out to investigate the changing ‘who’, ‘how’ and ‘why’ of development finance, and how they are all simultaneously in flux in profound ways.
It will frame the key scenarios and policy questions deriving from tectonic shifts in development objectives, actors, instruments and relationships, looking at ‘Horizon 2025’.
It will also assess ways in which aid recipients can best manage the challenge of coping with changing patterns and actors in development finance, with country case studies.
The DFID Accountable Grant has funded the Cambodia and Ethiopia country case studies.
