Course Overview

Increased and better coordination between donor governments and multilateral aid organizations could make global development assistance more effective and efficient. For maximum effectiveness, choosing the most appropriate event or method for a particular cause is extremely important as not all causes can be met through all events or methods. Maintaining transparency in the usage of funds and publishing reports to relevant stakeholders helps garner trusts and future commitment from donors.
