Global pressure on public finances is increasing. It is vital to ensure that aid assistance leads to demonstrable results. KPMG is at the forefront of international thinking in this field.
We are the lead evaluator for the UK’s Independent Commission for Aid Impact, ICAI, the independent body responsible for scrutiny of UK development assistance. By supporting ICAI, we are helping to maximise the impact and effectiveness of the UK aid budget for intended beneficiaries and the delivery of value for money for the UK taxpayer.Learn more about our work with ICAI
The latest KPMG Issues Monitor explores the challenges women face over the course of their life, what measures are currently being taken and what still needs to be done to tackle the issue of gender inequality.
In April, KPMG’s International Development Assistance Services practice convened business leaders, policy makers, academics and KPMG partners and senior managers from around the globe at its 2012 IDAS International Conference - Change, Emerging Nations and the Age of Civil Society.
The event featured the launch of the new Change Readiness Index as well as sessions covering the issues of accountability, austerity, convergence in development and development value chains.
In December 2011, KPMG hosted a Knowledge and Information Session at the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness, on the concept of NGO accountability.
This session drew on our experience with the UK’s Department for International Development, DFID, for whom we conduct due diligence on all civil society organisations selected to receive funding through the Global Poverty Action Fund and the Civil Society Challenge Fund.
