Ending Aid Dependence - Book Launch

4 November 2008 - 17:00 to 18:00

Chatham House, London


Yash Tandon, Executive Director, South Centre



Yash Tandon explores the possibilities for change in the architecture of aid in his new book 'Ending Aid Dependence' (Fahamu Books). Developing countries reliant on aid want to escape dependence, and yet appear unable to do so. This book proposes ways developing countries can free themselves from aid that has had varying degrees of success. Tandon argues in his book that exiting aid dependence should be at the top of the political agenda of all developing countries.
