Donor governments face growing demands to justify the allocation of foreign aid resources across multilateral, bilateral and multi-bi channels. They are also recognising that choosing the appropriate aid channel creates opportunities to make aid more effective, as well as providing an important backdrop for the performance of global institutions. This breakfast event brings together policymakers and researchers to discuss options for ‘smarter aid allocation’ across the multilateral-bilateral spectrum.

Attendance is by invitation only and places are limited. Please express an interest in attending by emailing Elize Hefer at [email protected]

This event occurs alongside the 2016 Centre for Aid and Public Expenditure (CAPE) conference, ‘Where next for development effectiveness?’.
