Abstract (Translated): 
This working paper examines the consequences for the recipients of the return of non-DAC donors to Africa. It categorises non-DAC donors according to the form, content, size and modality of aid in order to reveal similarities and differences. On the one hand, the paper finds that the return of non-DAC donors ceteris paribus will increase the external financial flows to Africa. In particular, it will increase the flows to countries not targeted by the majority of DAC donors. Moreover, these flows are closely related to other financial flows, such as trade and investments. On the other hand, the paper finds that the return of non-DAC donors may conflict with plans to harmonise aid and will simultaneously raise transaction costs for the recipients.
