Aid Management and Financial Management

Emily Kallaur of the the Development Gateway Foundation advocates that aid management and financial management systems should be integrated. Aid management and harmonization is one of the areas of concern for the DGF. "Many countries receive large amounts of external funding that are not reflected in the government's budget, but are captured in an aid management system," she commented. By linking a system such as the Aid Management Platform to a financial management system, it's possible to create a comprehensive picture of the country's resources and how they are being used, empowering policymakers to make more informed decisions."
