  • Can pay-for-performance save US Aid? Why Tina Rosenberg didn’t convince me | Jina Moore
    t the I love my cushy aid life and I m dependent on the system so I look the other way and I m the one who signs the checks kind of ignoring It s the collective we with a national U S objective the we ll fund your education access expansion plan because we think you might make a strategic place for a military base in the next decade or two according to my top Pentagon advisors kind of ignoring The point is Pretending that aid is only about the deliverables that are its objects is naive And therein is the irony for Rosenberg If she wanted to make an argument that would satisfy Republicans bent on cutting aid why not point out that aid is national security tool There are plenty of good examples even a Tea Partyer could love money we ve given to Sudan and Pakistan in exchange for cooperation in the war on terror say One final thought This all feels somehow familiar Maybe it s simply an uncomfortable rhetorical similarity but there s something kind of fee for service sounding about pay for performance The last time we had such a clear and simple moment of unencumbered obviousness for fixing poor countries we ran them into the ground with Structual Adjustment Programs Which any article on aid and development might like to remind are a big part of what these countries are recovering from I m not anti CoD I love writing about innovations in policy and I m always interested to see how even murky ideas can help move a debate I think the idea probably didn t get the level of attention it deserves Birdsall has been working on this and been in conversation with high level players in aid and development for a long time But this article didn t convince CoD is the right way to go I m afraid it may just muddy already confused waters Tags aid new york times

roundup and come add your ideas 9 Comments MJ says March 16 2011 at 8 50 am Hi Jina I can t speak for American education but I know that the British education system has its share of failing schools It is also distorted by the all the same kind of skewed incentives that you re lambasting But here s the thing it s still a million miles better than the education system in Malawi I don t think anyone pretends CoD Aid will deliver even close to perfect results especially in something as fuzzy to measure as education but let us not let the best be the enemy of the even slightly better Bureaucracies the world over really struggle to consistently deliver quality outputs throughout their entire domain But to continue with the Malawian education example getting in Western bureaucrats to tell their Malawian counterparts what to do hasn t worked very well and tends to p ss off the hosts somewhat Most of the problems these bureaucracies deal with are not rocket science there s just no incentive to deliver or to manage better Aid dollars get spent in endless rounds of meetings and workshops in between which precious little gets done CoD aid says We re fed up with this nonsense You sort out your own problems and we ll pay by results Even if there is a lot of cheating I guess the hope is that enough changes are nonetheless delivered to make the exercise worthwhile Importantly also by publicising the funds available I think it would take away the commonest excuse of governments that they don t have enough money The populace would know that there is X available per educated child etc and demand the service To start with the government would pluck the low hanging fruit claim for stuff paid for by other donors and or done by NGOs if you calibrate it right this would be less than the current budget spent on workshops and other guff but then in order to get any more they d have to do some real work I think the existing system is so ed up that it s really worth trying although I too have my doubts that the incentives will work at the lower end of the ladder absentee teachers are going to continue to be a problem But building real country ownership would be a first And it might also put out of work a few aid effectiveness officers which would have to be a good thing MJ Reply Jina Moore says March 16 2011 at 9 10 am The fact that the British ed system is a million miles better than the one in Malawi is nice but probably has as much to do with Britain s functioning economy strong welfare state citizen education and century long position as a global power however it waxes and wanes it s never disappeared I m not sure that means this is a best is the enemy of the better problem It might be more a this way is the opposite of kumqwats problem I totally get the feeling behind CoD we re fed up with this But I still think it oversimplifies solutions while imposing its own version of nonsense a global internal auditing outfit to find out if Malawi is lying about student enrollment Why would their auditing system be any better

  • Who should decide how aid is used? | Jina Moore
    agree that the recipient matters but the fact is that donors matter too If organization x tells me that my money will go to buy chickens in a specific African village I expect that to happen As is often the case this does not really happen In this example I do not think it would be unfair if I was to be upset that my money was not being used the way I intended and was told Why is it so hard for an org to fess up and let a donor know when a changed needs to be made Maybe it is too complex but that would certainly help things along and reassure donors that the money is being used in the most effective way possible To me there seems to be two problems uninformed and misinformed donors Organizations are not always completely truthful as they need donations to continue their work Donors believe these organizations to be trustworthy because they are charitable That is not to say that most or even many organizations are corrupt but it is to imply that many will take some freedoms ie Kiva Heifer Int l etc That does not excuse anyone from not doing the necessary research when considering a donation If this is correct the solution is for organizations to be more upfront with what is really happening with money donated and donors do their homework The recipients should always matter most but how is aid best distributed The mommy knows best solution furthers paternalism and handouts can do much the same while creating dependency I don t really have an answer to that but I hope that it highlights the fact that it is extremely complex So in the end I am taking the middle by saying that everyone has some sort of voice in the matter because they are taking part in the process I don t know if that is much of an answer I hope other people share some ideas as well Reply Quiet Griot says August 8 2010 at 6 36 pm I think we have to be a little careful about distinguishing between private acts of charity and aid money If some old couple from Virginia wants to raise money to give bikes to kids in Tanzania well hooray for them What else would that money be getting spent on Subscriptions to Reader s Digest It would certainly be better if they would spend their time and energy raising money for bednets or something but bikes are better than nothing Raging against those people is a waste of time Aid isn t the same There s only so much money your government is going to spend on foreign aid and only so much time and energy that will go into figuring out how it s going to be to spent It s extremely important that we not spend it on things like bikes for kids in Tanzania because that s money that we could otherwise
