Spyglass. Spigot. Spoon. Or Spanner. What future for bilateral aid?

Working papers

Written by Simon Maxwell

If bilateral aid agencies are not reviewing their mandate, priorities and competences, they probably should. There are four models they might follow, alone or in combination. And the choices aid agencies make now will shape the aid industry for a generation to come.
