Best Practice of Thailand’s Development Cooperation Project in LaosJoin this project
The new phase of aid is shaped by increasing aid flows from non-traditional donors (non OECD DAC members); such as, Brazil, South Africa, India, Thailand, etc. These non traditional providers, while contribute to the strength of south-south cooperation through their various aid schemes, are questioned regarding their different aid process, in particular the effectiveness of aid. It is the fact south-south cooperation is often different from traditional aid schemes in terms of both objectives and approach, namely it is the combination of aid, trade, security, diplomacy, and economic development. Therefore, the current traditional methodologies and techniques for aid monitoring and evaluation (M & E) are inadequate to capture the volume, type, and content of aid flows, as well as the complex outcomes resulting from partnerships based on mutual benefits. South-south cooperation effectiveness is critically important yet under-studies.
