V4 Development Cooperation: Challenges and Prospects for Common Actions
Visegrad countries (V4) are emerging donors seeking to enhance their own development cooperation systems in spite of limited resources and expertise in the field. Even though they share similar challenges and potential in development cooperation they seem more often to compete rather than collaborate. More cooperation between them could help to both improve national systems and open the way for joint V4 initiatives in foreign aid. Four particular areas—aid financing, aid transparency, transition experience and division of labor—offer the greatest scope for improvement and require immediate action.
