Economic Impact of IP Development Aid
We used an institutional economics framework to map the impact of technical assistance on development aid.
We found that IP related technical assistance is widely dispersed and lacks a concerted approach. Many initiatives are undertaken on an ad-hoc basis and more could be done to assure that development aid is truly targeted towards the need of the receiving country. These findings were reflected in this specific donor country’s technical assistance. More should be done however to assure also other country’s assure that their development aid is done in the most efficient way possible.
