Institional Capabilities, Reform Ownership and Development in SSA  

Project name/title
Institutional Capabilities, Reform Ownership and Development in SSA
Year:
2000
Theme:
Africa's Economic Development
Abstract:
Past policies, an erroneous approach to adjustment, and 'geography' are repeatedly cited as explanations for Africa's poor performance. But, weaknesses in the institutional capacity of the African State may be as important. In particular, economic policies continue to be donor-driven in many cases, with a lack of local ownership. This project will conduct a systematic analysis of institutional constraints and ownership issues, including analysis of specific programme and project successes and failures when local ownership has been encouraged/permitted.
