AID TO THE POOR IN MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRIES AND THE FUTURE OF THE INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION

AID TO THE POOR IN MIDDLE INCOME COUNTRIES AND THE FUTURE OF THE INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT... We are sleep walking into a situation where over the next decade and a half concessional development assistance will disengage from the bulk of the world's poor. This is happening because countries that are graduating into Middle Income status still have large numbers of poor people. This new situation, where three quarters of the world's poor live in Middle Income Countries, raises fundamental questions about the salience of national level achievements in determining global responsibilities towards the poor in each nation. They also raise basic questions for the operational rules of access to concessional development assistance such as that provided by the International Development Association (IDA). This paper set out the issues, and presents a proposal for a new window of IDA which recognizes that poverty persists and development problems remain despite the welcome graduation of many countries to Middle Income status. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of International Commerce, Economics and Policy World Scientific Publishing Company

Abstract

We are sleep walking into a situation where over the next decade and a half concessional development assistance will disengage from the bulk of the world's poor. This is happening because countries that are graduating into Middle Income status still have large numbers of poor people. This new situation, where three quarters of the world's poor live in Middle Income Countries, raises fundamental questions about the salience of national level achievements in determining global responsibilities towards the poor in each nation. They also raise basic questions for the operational rules of access to concessional development assistance such as that provided by the International Development Association (IDA). This paper set out the issues, and presents a proposal for a new window of IDA which recognizes that poverty persists and development problems remain despite the welcome graduation of many countries to Middle Income status.
