'Beyond Aid' for sustainable development

Briefing papers
April 2009
Alan Hudson

While the prospects for developing countries are shaped by a wide range of domestic issues, such as politics, others have important cross-border dimensions. These go beyond aid to include trade, migration, investment, environmental issues, security and technology. It is these 'Beyond Aid' issues, rather than aid alone, that will shape the development prospects for many countries. This Project Briefing, supported by OECD and DFID, examines Policy Coherence for Development -- approaches to ensure that donor policies on Beyond Aid issues support progress towards the Millennium Development Goals.
