Abstract:

QuODA is an assessment of the Quality of Official Development Assistance (ODA) provided by 23 donor countries and more than 150 aid agencies. Aid quality is assessed using 30 indicators grouped in four dimensions that reflect the international consensus of what constitutes high-quality aid:

  • Maximizing Efficiency
  • Fostering Institutions
  • Reducing Burden
  • Transparency and Learning

Rankings can be viewed in separate indices and in the Quality of Aid Diamond, which makes it possible to quickly compare countries and agencies across all four dimensions. The authors hope that QuODA will be a catalyst for lively debates and, more importantly, for substantial improvements in how aid is provided.
