This work aims to explore some of the weaknesses that the international aid system presents for efficaciously operating in promoting development. For this, it adopts an institutionalapproach, attempting to investigate the problems of asymmetry in information that occur both in relationships between donor and receiver and within aid organisations. The analysis of these aspects leads the author to underscore the importance that learning processes have in enriching interventions in development; he also underscores the importance of the attitudes and aptitudes of the agents in fostering these processes of improvement in aid quality.
