Key messages on aid fragmentation

Part II of this report is the 2011 OECD Report on Division of Labour: Addressing Cross-Country Fragmentation of Aid. Drawing on CPA data, this part examines a growing threat to aid architecture – aid fragmentation. These key messages provide an overview of aid fragmentation. It looks at how it is measured, and introduces the notion of “significant” and “non-significant” aid relations. The overview discusses patterns in the growing fragmentation of aid, and examines which countries are most affected. It then addresses donors’ growing awareness of the need to rationalise aid practices and briefly considers how recipient countries will be affected by donor exits. Finally, it proposes ways of curbing aid fragmentation, and proposes relative targets to guide changes in this direction.
