Innovative Approaches to Aid Effectiveness
An article in the latest issue of Fortune magazine focuses on MCC and its innovative approach to development, stating, "Early results suggest the model is working," and "the agency certainly gives the taxpayer real bang for the buck."
Meanwhile, the world’s top development officials meet next week in Busan, South Korea, for the 4th High-Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness.
While in Busan, the U.S. Government delegation, led by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, will be working with other donors and recipient countries to redefine how everyone thinks about results. A goal will be to shift the focus from measuring results by dollars spent to demonstrable outcomes and actual impact, an approach that agencies such as MCC has continued to develop and implement since its creation nearly eight years ago.
MCC has published a variety of white papers and facts sheets on Aid effectiveness. Visit the link here to access the resources.
