Grants to Needy Countries? A Study of Aid Composition between 1975 and 2005

Johansson, Pernilla LU (2011) In Development Policy Review 29(2). p.185-209
Abstract
This article discusses whether the poorest and most indebted countries receive aid in the form of grants rather than loans, by studying bilateral aid flows to low- and middle-income countries between 1975 and 2005. The empirical analysis finds no evidence that more indebted countries receive a higher grant component, but it does show that poorer countries receive a significantly higher grant component, although the size of the effect is quite limited.
