Domestic Resource Mobilization

DAkar

Economic development is a domestically driven enterprise. No amount of foreign assistance or investment can substitute for a coherent, dynamic and domestically driven capital accumulation, intermediation and mobilization process.

Such a process is vital, even in the poorest of countries, so that nations can gradually ease their need for aid and for other unpredictable external sources of funding, sources which had been disproportionately drawn upon to finance their development needs.

NSI has been working with African, UK and Canadian partners to bridge the gap between research and practice regarding domestic resource mobilization (DRM).

DRM refers to savings and investments that are generated by both the public sector, primarily through taxation, and the private sector, as a channel for private savings by households and domestic firms.
