HORIZON 2025: creative destruction in the aid industry

Horizon 2025, a report by the U.K.-based Overseas Development Institute, says the world’s poorest populations will be in fragile, low-income African countries in 13 years’ time. That’s opposed to current scenarios where poverty is said to be concentrated in middle-income countries.

 

The report further identifies three main rationales it says will guide future development cooperation: provide social welfare, promote mutual economic growth and ensure equitable provision of global public goods like climate finance.

Food aid system smarter, despite old flaws

Food aid system smarter, despite old flaws | IB Geography (Diploma Programme) | Scoop.it

Hear the word “famine” and many people imagine convoys of trucks piled high with sacks of grain arriving in a region devoid of food.

 

But in the 21st-century fight against hunger, aid agencies are increasingly deploying cash via food vouchers, text messages or smart cards with electronic chips. If they distribute food, it’s often food bought locally.
