    Abstract

    This article provides evidence on what developing country governments expect to be their main challenges within five to 10 years, and how they want their relationships with development assistance providers to evolve in order to meet these challenges. The results, based on a survey commissioned by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) of 40 partner country governments, indicate that demand for official development assistance (ODA) is likely to remain strong in the medium term, but that partner countries are actively diversifying providers in order to spread risk. Countries want ODA providers to shift to a more enabling role in the coming years, providing vital finance, but in support of government-led sector programmes, delivering more and better technical and policy support, and leveraging more private finance.
