‘High-Quality Aid’ Can ‘Save Lives And Promote Development’

Foreign Policy: The Case for Aid
Jeffrey Sachs, director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University

“…As experience demonstrates, it is possible to use our reason, management know-how, technology, and learning by doing to design highly effective aid programs that save lives and promote development. This should be done in global collaboration with national and local communities, taking local circumstances into account. The evidence bears out this approach. … Aid is needed, and can be highly successful. The issue is how to deliver high-quality aid to the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people” (1/21).
