Poverty and Policy: A Study of Canada’s Relations with Developing Countries

Published: November 5, 2003

(uniquement disponible en anglais)

This is the final of the four case studies that form part of The North-South Institute’s project on Poverty and Policy Coherence. The first study on Mali was released in November 2000, the second on Bangladesh in November 2001, and the third on Jamaica in March 2002.

With funding from the Canadian International Development Agency and the International Development Agency, we decided to undertake a series of three developing country case studies to examine how Canadian aid and non-aid policies interact in practice. These studies also consider how Canadian policies interact with the poverty reduction policies of the recipient country and other donor agencies operating in that country. This Canadian case study focuses on the growing international engagements of different government departments and the need for closer collaboration, especially if Canada is to maximize its support of global poverty reduction efforts. The recently launched dialogue on foreign policy provides an important opportunity to consider the critical issues of poverty and policy coherence.
