Center for Global Development

For A Multi-country Field Study Of U.S. Government Approaches To Country Ownership

This grant will support analysis of how U.S. development agencies define and implement aid effectiveness principles related to country ownership. The in-depth study, which includes field-based work for country case studies, intends to deepen policymakers’ understanding of differing U.S. government approaches to aligning donor assistance with partner country priorities, and relying more on countries themselves for implementation of donor-funded programs. The project will also consider the challenges faced in implementing country ownership principles, and identify practical ways of improving U.S. performance in this area.

for a project to develop an institutional capacity building initiative in sub-Saharan Africa  
The Center for Global Development is an independent policy research center that works to reduce global poverty and inequality. With this grant, the center will design an initiative to strengthen the institutional capacity of policy research institutions in sub-Saharan Africa. We expect this to result in the launch of a multi-stakeholder initiative to support such institutions in strengthening their governance, management, and human capital.
