Extra resources for Development Cooperation: Challenges of the New Aid Architecture
The individual project that can be attributed to a specific donor therefore recedes into the background or is even deemed to be disadvantageous for development (distortion of accountability structures). In some cases, a high level of visibility in partner countries is more likely to be achieved through budget support and other contributions to programme financing than through classical, demonstrable bilateral projects. Participation in processes of on-the-spot dialogue is of growing importance for visibility.

This is true especially because of the many difficult situations in which military resources cannot make a constructive contribution, and ultimately, only when the specific circumstances of the individual case have been considered can it be determined whether such resources may help to reduce human suffering and to restore stability in the long term.
