If donors are serious about helping to rebuild war-torn countries, they should give reliable, steady amounts of aid money, be prepared to run their projects for a minimum of 15 years and think big, according to a World Bank report which urges new thinking to tackle conflicts and violence.(..)"Consider China’s economic investment in and trade with Africa (investment is estimated to have at least tripled since 2002), Brazil’s peacekeeping role in Haiti, Indian development assistance to Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia’s increased assistance to the World Food Programme, and the evolving roles of South Africa, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates in mediation," the report says.
