  • Title: Aid Management and Utilisation in Ethiopia: A study in response to allegations of distortion in donor-supported development programmes
    Descriptive info: Aid Management and Utilisation in Ethiopia: A study in response to allegations of distortion in donor-supported development programmes.. Development and aid in Ethiopia.. Ethiopia has made impressive development progress in recent years.. Since 2000, Ethiopia has recorded the second fastest improvement in human development in the world (UNDP Human Development Report).. Economic growth has accelerated on a sustained basis from around 2003, despite the global economic crisis.. Significant progress is being made towards the Millennium Development Goals, with Ethiopia on track to meet Goal 1 (eradicate extreme poverty and hunger), Goal 2 (achieve universal primary education), Goal 6 (combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases) and Goal 8 (develop a global partnership for development).. Good progress is also being made towards Goal 4 (reduce child mortality) and Goal 7 (ensure environmental sustainability).. External aid has played a significant role in helping to deliver this development progress and growth, saving lives and improving livelihoods.. These achievements are an important measure by which donors assess the overall effectiveness of their support to Ethiopia.. Allegations of distortion in donor-supported development programmes.. In January 2010, in response to allegations that some donor-supported programmes in Ethiopia were being used for political gain – with aid allocated according to political affiliation, rather than solely need – the Development Assistance Group (DAG) commissioned a study to assess the rigour of the programme systems and safeguards that are designed to ensure that aid is spent effectively.. The main allegations, reported by the Ethiopian opposition, international NGOs and the media, were that targeting of beneficiaries and recruitment of public service employees within a number of donor-supported programmes were being influenced by considerations of political affiliation; in short, that aid allocations were subject to political distortion..  ...   part of a potential second phase.. At the same time, given the importance of external aid in a resource scarce country like Ethiopia, the DAG was keen to make sure that programmes with a track record of development impact were not thrown off course without due cause.. The Government of Ethiopia shares the responsibility for ensuring aid spent through government programmes is spent effectively and reaches its intended beneficiaries and, moreover, has the lead responsibility to investigate specific allegations through appropriate administrative and legal channels where this is justified.. The study included a thorough review of the existing systems and safeguards for each programme, and consultation with development partners, civil society and the Government of Ethiopia.. The study found that all four programmes have accountability systems in place that provide checks on distortion, including distortion for political gain, but that all four programmes should be further strengthened by giving more attention to transparency (through the generation and dissemination of information), independent monitoring, and the incentives which drive performance.. Next steps.. The Government of Ethiopia has followed the progress of the DAG study with interest, and from the start has signalled its intent to work with Development Partners to act on any recommendations to improve the systems and safeguards in the programmes concerned, including investigating where appropriate.. The DAG is now working with the Government to act on the recommendations for continued strengthening of safeguards, ultimately to maximise the developmental impact of all donor-supported programmes in Ethiopia..
