Today I've written a short paper outlining 7 proposals for the UK's Department for International Development (DfID).
I've tried to highlight practical ideas which haven't already had much coverage (although you might still have come across some some already, or even thought of them yourself).
All of the proposals stem from a desire to fix the 'broken feedback loop' - between aid beneficiaries - and decision-makers, tax-payers and charity-givers.
After the general election, there's a big opportunity for the new International Development Minister to tackle this problem. They're going to need all the help they can get.
The paper isn't meant to be a comprehensive solution to the aid sector's problems. Incremental improvements are usually more profitable than grand strategies.
If you have any thoughts - supportive or critical - then please do share them.
