Last Year’s CIPS Blog Highlights, Part 3: International Development

Following a turbulent period for Canada’s international aid program—one that saw the folding of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) into the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development—the 2013-14 year saw CIPS bloggers reflecting on both Canada’s own development spending as well as international trends and priorities. Some authors took issue with the level and transparency of Canada’s development spending. Others questioned whether aid efforts by Canada and other donors are oriented around the right priorities. Still others reflected on the new development terrain created by the status of China and other emerging powers as donor countries.

Stay tuned next week as we wrap up this four-part series on the Greatest Hits of the CIPS Blog’s post last year.
