We Know What Works in Foreign Aid - But we don't Always Act on that Knowledge

17 April 2013

Is the focus of aid funds really the poorest countries in the world? Does the international community follow it's best knowledge on aid modalities? How could education aid be more effective? Has the concentration on enrolment levels in primary education thwarted the quality of education in sub-Saharan Africa?

In this video from the ReCom results meeting on aid and the social sectors Bob Baulch, Abby Riddel and Katharina Michaelowa answer these questions and argue that one of the most glaring facts is that the international community knows what the best practices are for many sectors, and aid in general, but these practices are often ignored none the less.
