Abstract

This research started in 2000, and is a first attempt to understand and assess the impact of changes in aid disbursement and increased conditionalities from international donors, and in turn UK NGOs, on development management and development relationships in selected countries of the south. The aim was to trace aid relations from donors to northern UK NGOs to southern branches of UK NGOs and southern partners to explore how the different demands being made fit together (or contradict each other) and how these are negotiated and implemented on the ground. This report consists of: Chapter 1: an introduction to the research; Chapter 2: the wider context and concepts shaping the work of donors and NGOs, and different ways of understanding development practice; and Chapter 3: Donors and the aid flow.
