Abstract Multilateral aid agencies aim to fund projects which will contribute to sustained development in the Third World. The pastoral areas of China present major challenges in relation to sustainable development. A major multilateral aid project designed to meet these challenges, the IFAD North China Pasture and Animal Development project, is described and evaluated using new survey data. A number of problems with this project which are common to many multilateral aid projects are discussed. In particular, the analysis supports the argument that multilateral aid agencies should place more emphasis on projects which facilitate the development of new institutions and policy reforms than on projects which concentrate on investment in new technology. The case study also illustrates the point that financial arrangements adopted by agencies such as IFAD can impose potentially serious unintended burdens on the recipient country.
