Aid management

Briefing/policy papers

This briefing paper argues that permanent overseas contacts and representatives are needed to achieve declared objectives for British aid. It highlights the difference between the management of an investment portfolio and efficient aid management. Given that 'the objective of British aid is to help developing countries in their efforts to raise living standards', the briefing paper argues that the UK has a direct interest in the recipient’s long-term economic well-being as well as its own development targets.
