Summary

From the Colombo plan through the formation of the Canadian International Development Agency in 1968 and continuing to the present, Canada’s track record as a donor has been one marked by success and failures, ebbs and flows. [...] At the same time, this new approach to development cooperation must embrace new analysis and approaches to development finance so as to cope with a variety of recent drivers of change to which Canada has been slow to respond. [...] The changing nature of insecurity and conflict in the developing world over the past twenty years has led to a closer linkage of the global development assistance and security agendas. [...] The inability to separate security and development concerns in many contexts requires a new approach to development that understands the security impact of development cooperation, can 5 target insecurity by promoting stability and peace, better understands the relationship between poverty and insecurity, and ensures that the security aims of donors and recipients do not overpower their developmen [...] The intersection of each of these drivers of change with poverty is at the core of the evolving development agenda, and implies significant shared interests between donor and recipient, developed and developing states.
