How can the Baltic States as Non-DAC donors best contribute to international development cooperation?


  • Hilmar Þór Hilmarsson


Many non-DAC donors, including the Baltic States, have both growing development assistance programs and valuable transition experiences to share. On the other hand, DAC countries have decades of experience in developing good practices in aid delivery and can support other donors such as the Baltic States in improving their development cooperation programs. This article argues that the Baltic States can potentially better share their transition experience and increase their development impact by engaging in development cooperation in partnership with other donors and by participating in policy dialogue and budget support when possible and appropriate. The international community, including international financial institutions and DAC countries, should make more effort in utilizing the transition experience of the Baltic States when assisting less advanced transition countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
