Problem of International Development Projects

By definition, international development projects have narrow objectives, shortlived, and are not institutionalized.

“Even though we know better” Harlan Cleveland said half a century ago,“ we are still tackling twenty-year problems with five-year plans based on two-year personnel working with one-year appropriations.

All too frequently projects are also determined less by what countries need than by the particular interests of agencies or philanthropy.
