Diversity and Complementarity in Development Aid@
\\East Asian Lessons for African Growth\\
Edited and published by the GRIPS Development Forum, February 2008


GRIPS Development Forum published an ODA policy report which serves as the conceptual basis for Japan-UK partnership, in collaboration with ODI in London. This report higlights comparative advantages of Japan and UK as donors and argue for their collaboration based on differences and complementarity. The report also provides ideas for concretizing growth initiatives in developing countries, especially in Africa. The report is offered as an intellectual input to the 2008 events to be hosted by Japan, especially the TICAD IV and G8 Summit. We believe that the principles advanced here should be applicable to all donors, NGOs and business enterprises engaged in the task of development. The chapters in this report are contributed by Japanese and UK researchers and policymakers, as wel as Malaysian and Ugandan experts. MORE(synthesis, pdf file, 25KB)
