The Emerging Donors Project
This program, beginning in 2011, will explore innovative financing of infrastructure development, technology sharing and health. Research will focus on public and private financing mechanisms for the provision of global public goods, including public-private partnerships. Attention will also be given to the potential role of the private sector in contributing to global development.
The program will focus on the role of the rising donors (Brazil, China, India, South Africa), the “N11” donors (South Korea, Chile, Mexico), established non-DAC donors ( Gulf States, Russia), and non-state donors (philanthropic and private sector donors), in driving innovation in global development. The research will examine the feasibility of building new multilateral arrangements between the emerging donors and the traditional donors, in the sectors of infrastructure development, technology sharing and health.
