CCIC Budget Brief 2016: Smart, transparent, and impactful aid

Official Development Assistance (ODA or aid) is one essential way in which Canada contributes to building a better world. This brief outlines some priority opportunities where Budget 2016 can make meaningful and practical contributions to Canadian and global objectives in the areas of international development and humanitarian assistance – working in collaboration with all development actors to improve the effectiveness of Canada’s development cooperation. This brief touches upon five areas where we can do this: through a ten-year timetable for increasing our ODA; greater transparency over spending; a strong focus on the poorest and most marginalized, in particular women; a humanitarian response commensurate with growing needs; and a commitment to new and additional climate finance.

The Canadian Council for International Cooperation, CCIC has put together a budget brief for the release of the 2016 budget.
