Abstract: According to this report dependency among 54 of the world’s poorest countries has declined by a third over the last decade. It also reveals that since 2006 there has been an increase in good quality aid – real aid – from 51 per cent to 55 per cent. Some of the world’s poorest countries are now far less reliant on aid than 10 years ago. This report also reveals that the quality of aid is improving so that each dollar spent is getting more results which is a contributing factor to the reduction in aid dependence. But while some countries, like the UK, Ireland and Denmark are giving a high proportion of real aid, in other parts of the world, it is a very different story.
