These 7 African Countries Can’t Live Without Aid


Mali: 10.94% of national income

Mali’s experience is that rather than using aid to develop, state institutions have been crippled – with a “mentality of aid dependency”  created. Between 1996 and 2005, aid represented three quarters of the special investment budget and 27.6% of the state’s general budget. Some analyses have described “aid [as] not a mere financial and technical tool to support national initiatives: it has replaced any national political reflection on development in the country.” This was evident in 2013 opinion polls when one of the most frequently-cited perceived causes of the country’s various crises was “weakness of the state.”
