The Bookshelf

Foreign aid in Africa is changing. In prior years, aid was the sole responsibility of governments. Now the dialogue has spread to citizens and institutions in the private sector. The Bookshelf is a resource of articles, videos, and books to help navigate this changing dynamic. The first section, Dismantle, demonstrates why approaches to foreign aid needed to be adjusted. The second section, Repair, examines the emerging aid model, which focuses on private organizations and citizens. The third section, From the Commission, displays the work being done by policy makers and practitioners.

A good place to start would be here.
