Aid Effectiveness : A tale of two countries, Benin and Togo

There is a vast literature on the international aid’s efficiency, as well at the global level as at the level of the projects. Up to here, these works did not succeed in showing significant impacts of aid, except in particular cases as the aid to post-conflict countries. The literature uses generally econometric approaches, which put in relation the performances in terms of growth with the received aid. The research described in this paper is different.

These two countries are indeed rather comparable, but they had different relation with the technical and financial partners’ community.
