DCID Professor of the Practice Emeritus Graham Glenday, and Ipchita Bharali (MIDP ’16) of the Center for Policy Impact in Global Health, along with PhD student Ziyuan Wang, have published a study aimed at understanding how countries are doing when it comes to raising their own financial resources as they transition away from foreign aid. In addition to analyzing the variables across countries, across classes, and across time, the study provides a framework that helps identify why some countries fall short of their potential to mobilize revenue. Sanford School Professor of the Practice Indermit Gill, Glenday, and Bharali collaborated on a companion policy brief which summarized the report and offered recommendations for governments – including improving tax expenditure reporting and analysis. The brief also offered recommendations for donors as they work with countries that are “graduating from aid” including support for strengthening institutional and administrative capacity before countries reach middle-income status. Finally, Gill and Bharali published a blog post on the topic for the Brookings Institution, where Gill is a non-resident Senior Fellow. The study was supported by funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
