Development newsletter

OECD Observer

What have humanitarian aid and Swiss army knives got in common? How is aid measured, and what is “phantom” aid? Is the situation after the tsunami tragedy improving? You can read about these issues in the OECD Observer of course, but there is a constant need for policymakers and NGOs to stay ahead of them.

The OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC) has responded by launching a new bimonthly electronic newsletter, DACNews, in April 2005. It looks at the latest development news, statistics and best practice recommendations, and features guest writers and comment from leaders in development. OECD-DAC countries handle over 90% of total world bilateral official aid.
