Aid Project Proliferation and Absorptive Capacity

David Roodman ()

No RP2006-04, WIDER Working Paper Series from World Institute for Development Economic Research (UNU-WIDER)

Abstract: Much public discussion about foreign aid has focused on whether and how to increase its quantity. But recently aid quality has come to the fore, by which is meant the efficiency of the aid delivery process. This paper focuses on one process problem, the proliferation of aid projects and the associated administrative burden for recipients.
