This paper looks at the reasons why donors making aid commitments must be sure to deliver them in full and on time. Two main ethical considerations are cited (i) the obligation to keep promises by doing as you say, the deontological argument, and (ii) out of consideration for the effects of not delivering, the consequential argument. It ends with actions that can be taken to ensure fulfilment of aid commitments.
