Moving away from aid: lessons from country experiences

Over the past decade, several developing economies have achieved strong and sustained economic growth, moving them up the income per capita ladder and away from aid. Some of these countries are expected to graduate from official development assistance (ODA). 


What can we learn from these countries that have started or completed the transition from aid to ensure that their development outcomes are sustained and expanded? What type of support would countries in transition from aid need from their development partners? 


Using key findings and lessons from ODI – in partnership with GIZ – case study research on Botswana, Chile, Mexico and the Republic of Korea, this webinar will seek to address these questions and shed light on the opportunities and challenges for countries managing the transition from aid and for development partners seeking to support them.


Please note, this event will be broadcast online only.
