Ann-Sofie Isaksson

Recent years have seen an increased focus on results in development cooperation, and a heated debate on the evaluation strategies and effectiveness of development policies. Against this background, the aim of this report is to introduce and discuss a novel approach to aid evaluation, namely geospatial analysis of development cooperation, utilizing subnational geocoded data on development projects and development outcomes to evaluate the allocation patterns and effects of development projects

The report was presented at a seminar Development progress from the bottom up? Improving knowledge of Swedish aid with geo coded data December 2017.
