The EBA Aid Review 2022

In its second year, the Covid-19 pandemic entailed enormous loss of human life and the altering of many societies. The effects of the pandemic can be measured in the sharp rise of people living in poverty, children missing out on schooling, as well as reductions in equality, health and living conditions for a great many people around the world. This poses huge challenges for international aid.

Our annual report The EBA Aid Review 2022 summarises insights and conclusions from our reports and seminars from the previous year. The report is written for a wide audience of policymakers, practitioners and students, as well as members of the broader public with an interest in development issues.

This year’s annual report covers a range of issues and topics. Among them are development assistance in challenging environments, improved aid evaluation methods, and norms and values in development cooperation. Other subjects include support to free and democratic elections, the authenticity of aid evaluation, in addition to an interview with EBA’s chairperson, Helena Lindholm, who looks back at the year that was.
