Blog Post Makes Recommendations For USAID To Become More Effective

International Policy Digest: Foreign Aid? Change It Already!
Astrid Ansah, a first-year graduate student studying international development at the Elliott School of International Affairs at The George Washington University, discusses ways USAID can make foreign aid more effective. She writes USAID can assume “the role of a facilitator because it will remove the long-standing aspect of local dependency,” choose “implementing organizations that offer the most impactful development objectives because it will refocus the purpose of development and stimulate innovation,” and allow “implementing organizations to set feasible indicators that will still maintain accountability because it will allow programs to produce real results” (3/22).
