THE MORE, THE BETTER? REFLECTIONS AROUND THE QUALITY OF SPANISH DEVELOPMENT COOPERATION

Spanish ODA has risen by 20% per year since 2005 and reached 0.45% of GNI in 2008. The article analyses specific quality indicators that should be linked to such remarkable increases. Several positive aspects are identified, such as the upholding of administration costs, a lower share of tied aid and positive developments in some quality indicators connected to the Paris Declaration. However, Spanish ODA is rather volatile and it is even allocated to countries ruled by dictatorships and high corruption levels. There are almost no public evaluations available that show quality improvements on line the remarkable quantity improvement.
