I started to write a response that said that the idea of anticipating accountability for million dollar handouts in PNG was one of the sillier ideas that I had heard. It did not work in Solomon Islands and is,perhaps, less likely to work in PNG. Then I realised that my own 'solution' was very similar. In PNG, and just about everywhere else that AusAID's gives our taxes away, we need to put the mutual into mutual accountability. Indeed, why not give the Executive incentives to promote bottom up solutions? If they don't they get nothing. If they do, they get assistance to do that project and something dearer to their ambitions. Yes, a different approach should be encouraged. Doing samesame has predictable results.
