Ending Aid Dependence Book Launched at Accra High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness

South Centre launched its publication "Ending Aid Dependence" at a side event to the Third High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in Accra, Ghana on 1st September 2008.

The book is authored by Dr. Yash Tandon, Executive Director, South Centre and the foreword is written by H.E Benjamin W. Mkapa, President of Tanzania (1995-2005).

About The Book
Developing countries reliant on aid want to escape from this dependence, and yet they appear unable to do so. This book shows how the developing countries can liberate themselves from the aid that pretends to be developmental but is not. Exiting aid dependence should be at the top of the political agenda of all countries.
