Opportunities and Challenges for the Next Prime Minister in International Development Policy

Published: February 4, 2003

This paper describes the key elements of the new context in which development must take place in the years ahead. It reviews Canada’s development record, both positive and negative. Two spheres of policy
and programming are addressed: foreign aid, which is explicitly oriented toward development cooperation, and “non-aid channels” such as trade and private investment, motivated by other objectives. The paper sets out the key challenges and opportunities that face leaders, including Canada’s next Prime Minister, as they contemplate the reshaping of development policy.
