Macroeconomic Analysis of the Impact of Foreign Aid on MDGs

Past Research Projects

In this study, appropriate aid strategies for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are explored through application of comprehensive econometric analysis of the impacts of foreign aid and remittances on the MDG effort. If the impacts are appropriately estimated, it may be possible to project progress toward achivement of the MDG indicators. This will be based on the current situation and on calculations of total foreign aid volume necessary to achieve the Goals by the target year (2015) by region or country. In addition, it also may pave the way for calibrating the contributions to attainment of MDG indicators by donor, thereby evaluating the aid efficiency of each donor.
