Blog Examines Whether Aid Helping To End Extreme Poverty

In the Center for Global Development’s (CGD) “Views From The Center” blog, CGD President Nancy Birdsall and researchers Christian Meyer and Nabil Hashmi write about the international goal of ending extreme poverty by 2030. “Reaching the goal requires reaching the right places, where most of the world’s poor people live. In those places, it turns out that official aid is playing a small role,” they state and provide data to support their argument. “The bottom line: In the rich world it is worth thinking hard about how to help poor countries in ways that go well beyond aid,” they conclude (11/20).
