How countries determine multilateral aid allocations

This chapter considers how countries decide between multilateral and bilateral aid and what arrangements they have for determining multilateral aid. It looks at the pros and cons of multilateral and bilateral development assistance, considers the case for multilateralism, and looks at examples of countries’ multilateral aid decisions and the evidence they are built upon – with value for money being an increasingly important factor. It also looks at multilateral organisations and fields of intervention to which donors make their contributions.
