Aid to the West Indies: a survey of attitudes and needs

Book/book chapter

Book/book chapter

The aim of this survey is to highlight the difficulties in effectively using British aid in the West Indies, explain the problems faced by the different ethnic groups in the area and analyse to what extent British aid contributes to solutions.

The author concludes that changes to the aid programme are to be made because they are no longer as helpful and effective as they were in the past. He stresses the need for technical assistance in education and training, even for countries that require less capital aid than others. Finally, he criticises the delays experienced in British-administered aid as opposed to American or UN aid.
