Product description


The book provides a fresh look into one of the most important unfinished agendas of foreign aid, i.e., the aid effectiveness agenda. It combines theoretical and practical contributions to propose new ways of thinking about the evaluation of the impact of aid, from its conceptualization to its implementation. It convincingly argues for the centrality of impact assessment in development programmes and it proposes reforms to ensure that such assessment truly contributes to making foreign aid an effective tool to improve lives in developing countries. The messages in the book should provide relevant food for thought for aid practioners, policy-makers, and academics alike. --Massimiliano Calì, World Bank
