Evaluating Foreign Aid Effectiveness in Nepal
MetadataShow full item record
Few studies have evaluated the effectiveness of donor aid in addressing health-and education-related Millennium Developmental Goals (MDGs). This research examines foreign aid and its effectiveness in reducing poverty through a case study of four World Bank projects implemented in Nepal from 2000 to 2017. Of the 172 projects identified through the World Bank website, four health-and education-related projects met the inclusion criteria. The evaluation of reports and other documents on projects resulted in two – an HIV project and school sector reform program – identified as effective because they met or exceed their baseline objectives. The two effective projects used a Sector Wide Approach, thus resulting in better results and more long – term impacts. Based on this conclusion, it is recommended that projects implemented in poverty stricken areas use methods that emphasize stakeholder coordination and national leadership.
