Why do countries become donors? Assessing the drivers and implications of donor proliferation

Sharing a report I wrote with Nilima Gulrajani for the Overseas Development Institute that may be of interest to list subscribers:




Why do countries become donors? Assessing the drivers and implications of donor proliferation


Research reports and studies
March 2017 Nilima Gulrajani and Liam Swiss


Despite growing aid fatigue in the global North, the number of bilateral aid-providing states is at an all-time high and continues to expand. This increase presents both an opportunity and a challenge for the global development
community.



This report examines the paradox of new donor countries’ (NDCs) dramatic growth by asking two questions:



• What is driving donor proliferation?

• What sort of donors are emerging from this rapid increase?
