The Reality of Aid Report 2018

The Changing Faces of Aid and Development Cooperation

The Reality of Aid Network

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

The Reality of Aid Report 2018 analyses the recent changes in international aid in the context of Agenda 2030, as well as the persistence of poverty and growing inequalities within and between countries.

The report suggests that aid resources are often insufficient and misdirected and provides recommendations for transforming the aid regime towards one based on solidarity, human rights, feminist principles, and addressing the root causes of poverty and inequality. 

The report is divided into short chapters and case studies on different themes and countries. Bond wrote the chapter on the United Kingdom: “Aid in the national interest” – in the interest of the poorest? [PDF]

Resource type: report
