Editorial Reviews

Review

"Can aid deliver the economic, social, and political transformations development demands, or is it condemned to small successes and failures? This is the central question that Wolfgang Fengler and Homi Kharas take on. Their approach is novel: to elicit the answers from scholars from the aid-recipient countries themselves. I commend this book to all those interested in reforming how aid is delivered so that it eventually becomes redundant." --—Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Managing Director, The World Bank, and former Minister of Finance, Nigeria

"Having headed the post-tsunami recovery effort in Aceh, I experienced firsthand that aid needs to be delivered differently. If you empower local leadership and set up effective coordination, you also can deliver aid differently and transform the lives of people on the ground. This book is the first of its kind to summarize these lessons from the field and put them together in a coherent framework. It is an inspiration for the whole international community." --—Dr. Kuntoro Mangkusubroto, former head of the Aceh and Nias Reconstruction Agency (2004-09)

"This book highlights the problems faced by recipient countries in prioritizing and managing aid receipts. Its recommendation to strengthen and differentiate aid coordination and management at the recipient country level is very appropriate. Both development partners and recipient countries need a constructive discussion; and hearing the aid recipients can yield crucial insights." --—Farrukh Khamraliev, Minister of Economic Development and Trade, Tajikistan
