IDS Bulletin Vol. 23 Nos. 2

Counterpart Funds and Development

Published on 1 April 1992

Counterpart funds play an important, growing and often controversial role in developing countries. The IDS Bulletin reviews the issues and connects counterpart funds to wider themes in development: poverty targeting, aid conditionality, the management of the budgetary process — and many others.

New guidelines are presented. The first priority is to narrow the gap between best and usual practice.
