        Aid donors should be more careful in the allocation of aid; they may give priority to provide aid to those recipient countries which have appropriate policy and institutional environments to make aid more effective. Recipients must have ownership of the aid-funded activity, to implement it effectively and sustainably (Gurmessa, ).   While donor intentions may be sincere, the authors conclude that it is possible that aid could undermine long-term institutional development, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. By reviewing the evidence of the potentially negative effects of aid dependence on state institutions, the authors provide a thorough analysis of the institutional.

This is Africa’s time. In the last 10 years, six of the world’s fastest-growing economies were African. stop of massive and continuous aid for it has created a culture of dependence and therefore constitutes an obstacle for introducing structural changes that would benefit the continent.
