Development aid is financial aid given by governments and other organizations to support the economic, development of developing countries. It is distinguished from humanitarian aid by focusing on alleviating poverty in the long term, rather than a short term response. The term development co-operation, which is used, for example, by the World Health Organization (WHO) is used to express the idea that a partnership should exist between donor and recipient, rather than the traditional situation in which the relationship was dominated by the wealth and expert knowledge of one side.
Neo-colonialism is a way of keeping power and resources from the local people. Large international companies were established in the former settlements and they sent their profits back to their own countries. In this way, exploitation still took place and the gap between the developed and developing countries kept on growing.
