Aid = help, typically of a practical nature
The changing face of development aid – A new OECD definition of development aid now includes more forms of military assistance and measures to house and process refugees within a member state’s own borders. So what’s the future of aid?
Lost in translation: Development versus tradition – When we give, what sort of aid are we supporting? Is it what local people want or need or what development agencies or investors themselves want and need? And at what cost or opportunity to local cultural beliefs or traditions and practices?
The story of aid – Rich countries started giving money to poorer countries in the nineteenth century when European powers like Germany, France and Britain funded infrastructure in their colonies to benefit their own economies.
