MetadataShow full item record
Summaries Poverty reduction is a stated priority objective of many aid donors. So how much aid is directly targeted toward meeting this objective? In fact, this question proves difficult to answer. Three possible measurement techniques are discussed – the project, sector and country approaches – and the results obtained from these techniques compared. It is found that only around 15 per cent of total aid is directly poverty?oriented.
