Hitting the Target? Evaluating the Effectiveness of Results-based Approaches to Aid
Eurodad Publication by Carlos Villota, September 2012
“Public and political pressure on budget allocations, coupled with the genuine need to make aid more effective to tackle the global poverty crisis, have resulted in a renewed focus on results. Several donors are promoting the use of aid to reward the achievement of predetermined performance targets. Though this is a recent trend, in 2010, total disbursements for results-based approaches broke the $5 billion barrier. Results-based approaches make part or all funding conditional upon verification of progress. Donors like this because it allows them to point to tangible outcomes of aid.”Hitting_the_target.pdf (application/pdf-Objekt).
