Smart Development in Practice

Oxfam's Smart Development in Practice reports (2008) bring voices from several countries to the Washington aid debate. The reports provide various perspectives—from the country offices of US agencies delivering aid, US contractors, host governments, civil society organizations, beneficiaries, and other donors—on the challenges confronting US foreign aid and the reforms that could improve it.

By responding to these voices, we can embrace a new vision for US foreign aid—one that listens to and works with the countries we are trying to support, and in the process, strengthens US standing abroad as a genuine partner in development.
