ADB | 2011 | ISBN: 9789290921400 9789290922773 | 595 pages | PDF | 4 MB

This book examines the concessional windows of multilateral financial development institutions. It also looks into trust funds, multipurpose vehicles, special facilities, and financial intermediary funds. It also analyzes different paradigms of organizational structures and the close connection between such structures and the institutional frameworks governing matters such as membership, representation in governing bodies, decision-making procedures, and voting rights—all of which play a part in the shaping of aid discussions.
In navigating the ever-increasingly complex landscape of aid architecture, this book is a valuable guide for all persons interested in concessional financing and the law of international organizations.
