This report seeks to address (1) the lack of cumulative and systematic knowledge about the role of external funding in promoting regional cooperation and integration in Africa and (2) the lack of clarity concerning what constitutes “good” and effective regional development cooperation. Its overall purpose is to examine “what works and why” in this field. The specific questions it addresses concern the quality and effectiveness of regional aid: (i) how should regional development cooperation be defined, designed and evaluated in order to have a positive development impact? (ii) how might regional and country-based assistance be better harmonized to enhance effectiveness? (iii) under what circumstances does external support reduce the implementation gap in ROs? (iv) how should regional development cooperation be implemented in order to be effective?
