Conference: Macroeconomic Management of Foreign Aid

Nairobi, Kenya
Friday, December 2, 2011 (All day) to Saturday, December 3, 2011 (All day)

To meet development objectives, aid recipients and their donor partners need to effectively manage the macro-economic effects of aid. Aid can improve the economy's supply-side and raise growth. But if the macroeconomic impact of aid is not managed well, it can distort and undermine growth. This event will clarify aid's macroeconomic effects. This knowledge will contribute to improving aid's growth impact and help with the scaling up of aid itself.
