About this title:

Synopsis: From the perspective of a distinguished director of technical cooperation projects in Hungary and the Russian Federation (as well as several Asian countries in an earlier period), this book provides a set of lessons for structuring a successful program. These lessons are for the donor community and the firms and individuals in charge of implementation. Written in readable nontechnical terms, Making Aid Work is a must for both the donor community and firms and individuals on the implementation front line. According to a General Accounting Office report, the Russian Federation project that Struyk uses for his primary examples has won rare praise: The USAID Mission Director in Moscow called it one of the most successful ones he has ever seen; a USAID official in Washington said that, for the money, no USAID project has had more macroeconomic impact.

Synopsis: Written in readable, non-technical terms, a set of lessons are provided here for structuring a successful programme of technical cooperation. Drawing on his and others' relevant experience, the author aims his work specifically at the donor community and firms or individuals in charge of such a program's implementation. Struyk builds from the foundation that the ultimate goal of such work should be to foster development in the recipient area; that such programmes should be replaced by local institutions once knowledge and expertise has been passed on. To help his readers realize this aim, he gives specific case-study evidence applicable to the newly-independent states.
