UN development aid [WP1033]

How does international aid create societal and political pressures within the very countries it aims to help? Focusing on Madagascar, we examine donor behaviour and its impact on a nation’s capacity to deliver the responsibilities of government.

This is the second podcast recorded during our meeting to discuss the future on the UN Development System in November 2010.
