Aid in the SDG Era: Understanding Aid Effectiveness Using a Disaggregated Approach

The need to design aid policies that help developing countries reach the SDG targets creates demand for highly specific, yet generalizable, research on aid effectiveness. The aim of the project is to investigate aid effectiveness using a systematic disaggregated approach. Through comparative analyses of aid impacts by donors, sectors and sub-national localities, we hope to shed light on sector-, donor- and location-specific aid effectiveness and how it can be improved.
