Programme Aid as an Appropriate Policy Response to Drought

Published on 1 January 1996

This paper puts forward the argument for programme aid as a policy response to drought. It suggests its importance lies in the initial impact of the aid transfer, and in the additional opportunities thereby made available to carry out strategic policy. Programme aid can short-circuit many of the economic knock-on effects of drought which contribute to destitution and the need for emergency food aid.
