Lessons From the World Of International Development Advising
. (Resource Handbook)

Lloyd J. Dumas, Janine R. Wedel and Greg Callman

"The crisis that nearly brought the world’s financial house down in 2008 demonstrated clearly and powerfully that the global economy cannot work well where there is widespread deception based in deep-seated corruption and lack of accountability. Corruption and lack of accountability are also key reasons why international development assistance so often fails to deliver on its promise. …this book analyzes the problem, considers how major donor organizations approach it, and offers a series of helpful strategies for working toward solutions—in aid delivery and beyond."
