WIDER Conference on Aid: Principles, Policies and Performance
Helsinki, Finland
Aid is one of the most challenging development issues facing the international community. There is now a pressing need to evaluate performance to date, and the future for aid in light of recent events such as the post-Monterrey consensus to substantially increase aid to meet the Millennium Development Goals, recent initiatives from donors, and an ongoing focus on Africa. The conference aims to bring together policymakers and academics from both the donor and recipient communities to review the progress achieved so far, identify the challenges ahead, and discuss the emerging new policy agenda in development aid. Conference topics will include: ?? aid and poverty reduction ?? aid and growth/aid effectiveness ?? aid and the public sector ?? new regionalism and development aid ?? aid modalities and aid heterogeneity ?? funding disaster recovery ?? aid volatility and aid predictability ?? coordinating development aid ?? aid to countries emerging from conflict ?? aid, governance and fragility ?? linking aid effectiveness and aid allocation together ?? new sources of finance and development aid ?? aid to Africa (NEPAD; Commission for Africa) ?? increasing aid: absorptive capacity issues, Dutch-disease effects ?? aid architecture and global economic governance [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
