Brief Description: Research-based evidence on the effectiveness on Japanase aid in Ghana
Part of a global project being undertaken by the Evidence based Policy Development Network (EBPDN) PDA coordinated the planning workshop held in Accra in October 2007 for this project for representatives of various organisations taking part in the global project. The workshop helped generate the terms of reference for the research carried out at the national level. The focus of the research was on Japanese aid as Japan would be hosting and chairing the 2008 G8 meeting. The research in Ghana commenced in December 2007 and ended in March 2008. The evidence generated on the effectiveness of Japanese aid from the Ghana study was incorporated into a global synthesis report that would be used to engage Japan and other G8 countries with a view of influencing the policy outcomes of the TICAD and G8 meetings in 2008. The global EBPDN is supported by ODI RAPID programme.
