Aid Quality

Aid can make a difference to the lives of millions of the world’s poorest people – but only when it’s done right.

The best aid is the kind that doesn’t just deliver stuff, but that also respects and includes the people it is trying to help and aims to build more resilient and independent communities.

A significant focus of UKAN’s work on aid effectiveness has been to scrutinise the UK’s progress toward meeting the commitments made at various aid effectiveness forums such as Paris and Busan. UKAN also looks at key aid effectiveness policy areas such as budget and program-based support, conditionality, evaluation, technical assistance, transparency and use of alternative aid modalities.
