African countries received well above $50 billion per year in official development assistance over the last five years, according to the OECD aid flow database. Managing aid is critical for many African countries to meet their development objectives and achieve the key principles of ownership of development policies, a focus on results, inclusive partnerships, and transparency of and accountability for development resources. This paper, the sixth in a series of seven, analyses countries’ responses to questions on the necessary mechanisms for good aid governance by finance ministries, including the existence and location of an aid management unit, the existence and coverage of aid management policies and aid information databases, and the rules on country approvals of aid-financed projects.
