This right from the BBC:
“Giving aid directly to governments in developing countries is as effective as funding specific projects and no more prone to corruption, a study says.
The report by the Paris-based organisation of industrialised nations (OECD) shows that aid funds are being increasingly channelled this way.
The OECD says this helps recipient governments plan anti-poverty schemes.
The report is the first major review by Western countries of how billions of dollars of development aid are spent.”
