The Reality of Aid Reports analyze and advocate key messages relating to the performance of aid donors from a unique perspective of civil society in both donor and recipient developing countries.
The RoA Reports have established themselves as a credible corrective to offcial publications on development assistance and poverty reduction. They have also developed a reputation as an important independent comparative reference for accountability and public awareness of development issues.
The report is a specialized selection of researches ranging from the emergence of new global donors such as India, China and South Africa as well as the establishment of a new international financial architecture in South America to the impact of these trends on the diverse economies of Asia, Africa and the Americas. It presents the general condition of the Southern continents along with the specific experiences of Zimbabwe, Uganda and the Philippines, and illustrates the viability as well as the deficiency of the rising South-South development cooperation.
This 2008 Reality of Aid Report presents evidence and opinions from organisations operating on the front lines of development policies around the world about the current reality of aid policies and their outcomes. The reality of aid in 2008 is that it continues to fail to promote human development for the eradication of poverty based on the core values of human rights, democracy, gender equality and environmental sustainability.
This edition of the Reality Check tackles the critical issues of civil society and development effectiveness. In the lead-up to the Accra High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, CSOs have been challenged to respond to the 2005 Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness in relation to their own effectiveness as aid and development actors. Rejecting the direct application of the Paris Declaration to CSO development roles, CSOs have focused on their roles as innovative agents of change and social transformation.
This issue of Reality Check evaluates the
phenomenon of global vertical programmes through the lens of aid effectiveness.
Clearly, vertical programmes present benefits but also pose challenges.
Yet these benefits and challenges differ considerably amongst themselves
and among sectors. The reality
of vertical funds is evolving, yet still provides nuanced lessons as we continue to learn how to better deliver aid.
"Aid-for-trade" (AfT) is the catch-all term for trade-related official development assistance (ODA) provided to developing countries. With the Doha Round in the doldrums, Aid-for-trade is gaining even more prominence within offical aid and trade circles.
